Young Fox Squirrel

Sciurus niger watching siblings creep up the pole toward him. Five young tree squirrels took up temporary residence outside our window. They performed some heart-stopping moves on the high wire, telephone pole, flimsy tree branches, and roof gutters. Most of the action happened out of frame, unfortunately. They're just so incredibly fast and I wasn't quite as fast without my morning coffee.
