Caught In The Act

I finally "caught him in the act."

Lying flat against the tree trunk, this squirrel was either using the stance to:

act as a protective mechanism
hide it's light colored underside, reducing visibility
blend in with the tree bark to avoid detection
protect the vital organs if attacked
to cool down the body temperature

just seeing, saying , and sharing...

the sun shining through his cute little ear is giving his hiding place a way. Happy Mothers day

Smart squirrel, quick photographer!
Or just taking a moment to check out his/her surroundings before continuing on down the trunk.

Nice shot of squirrel yoga - he (?) looks a great deal more flexible than me!
