OH MY!

This one is for you, oh great Squirrel Queen Judy of  Through a Squirrels Eyes   I shot this one with telephoto lens through the sliding glass door.

We were sitting at the breakfast bar yesterday and hubby said "LOOK" and there he was, hanging upside down to reach the water. I said "did you put water in the bird bath for the squirrels?" Hubby said "yes"
I said "then why is he drinking from the pool?" who knows? the squirrel/bird bath was full of water.

Yes he did back up and did not fall in.

Hi Sandra, now hanging backwards would have really been a neat capture for this guy. Glad he got his drink without getting dunked. BTW, thanks for the comment on the Three Little Piggies on our blog. It was fun to capture them as they were really camera hogs (sorry bad pun intended).

I think he might be admiring his reflection in the water... thinking...'my what a handsome fellow this is'.

Perhaps he saw his reflection and thought it was fetching? I do see reflections in the pool. But why ask why? Squirrels are just nuts! Great catch!!!

Squirrels just have a knack for hanging upside down! This photo was pretty funny. Gonna blow some of this cold your way Sandra, I'm tired of it. It was only 25 here this am at 5:30!

He is cute. If he fell in would he be able to get out?

That is way too cute, great capture Sandra.

Squirrels are very curious about everything. Then he could have been checking the water temperature before going for a swim!!!
