Serious Squirrel

    Newer Older

    The squirrel crept to the end of a broken branch, stopped, turned halfway away as if he changed his mind, then turned back quickly and hurtled himself a couple feet forward through the air and dropped onto the railing. After landing he saw me and and jumped right back to the tree.

      Hi, I'm an admin for a group called ScratchDown. This photo is amazing and would be perfect for "scratching and guessing". We'd be grateful if you would add it to the group!

      Hi, I love this photo and have just been writing a collection of short stories for children and one is about a squirrel. Would I be allowed to use your photo in a self-published book?
