Spreadeagled


I had to smile at this little grey squirrel in the woods. It saw me coming and froze, splayed upside down on the tree trunk. (How do they hang on like that?) I suppose they operate on the same basis as my two year old granddaughter when she plays Hide and Seek: 'If I stay perfectly still and close my eyes so I can't see her, she can't see me...'

  1. What a wonderful photo. As Madonna sang in Vogue, strike a pose.

  2. Quite a capture! In some ways our vision's still often reliant on movement; I've walked past a rabbit on occasion that I wouldn't have noticed if it hadn't decided to sprint off.

  3. It has quite the bushy tail!

  4. That is exactly it: I'm not moving, so I must be invisible.
