Just Hangin' Out

I looked out the window yesterday and saw something in the branches of an aspen tree. We have a couple of stray cats that hang around the barn. My view from the window was farther away than this, so I thought it might be one of them.

Nope, it's a fox squirrel, just lounging casually in that curve of the branch. I ask you, did you ever see a squirrel so relaxed it let its tail hang down like that?

Seriously, that is one laid back squirrel. Look closer. Paws crossed, chin on hands. Just chillin'.

Your friend has captured the way I feel today. I'll try to emulate that to the extent of my capabilities.

Awww...very cute! Yeah, I see them spread out and relax on the fence sometimes. I guess animals "chill", right?
