Squirrel in a Tree

The wind is starting to pick up outside (as was expected) and the leaves were making so much noise, I decided to check them out. While out there, I saw this squirrel hanging on for dear life in one of the smaller trees outside the office and decided to grab a photo of it as it swayed back and forth in the wind.

Such a lovely image and such a little cutie in the tree. How lucky to be there to see him and watch him there. Did he manage to hang on or what?

He got down eventually. I think he was motion sick though.

If he was looking for food, then he was in the wrong tree. The one a few feet away from him still had plenty of crabapples in it.

@srhelmer - Howdy Steve - From the look of the stuff growing on the tree, that squirrel was not likely to climb down too soon. -Gus-

We just put out our bird feeders. We buy special ones that are squirell proof, they can't get the food because the gates close as soon as they attack the feeded. They have learned if they jump onto the feeder from above it swings wildely so they drop off of it and feed on the seed that flys out of the feeded gone wild on to the ground. Ienjoy watching them in the wind, Love your photo.

Poor little squirrel. I hope he didn't get blown out of his tree.
