Apprently he wanted to pose for another shot before he would move so I can get to the door. After this shot he took off up the tree which is to camera left out of frame. I was so hoping when I opened the door Jasper wouldn't come running out. The squirrel was only 4 feet above my head on the tree.
Love this gallery. Bambi and Thumper and all the "sweeter" critters. But there was something about this particular shot ... and I can't put my finger on it. The shovel handle adds to it. The Christmas lights .... aren't it. I guess it's just the look on its face.
