You’ve heard the expression “shake a leg“? Sparky shakes a tail!
Sparky the squirrel suddenly appeared out of the bushes and posed for a moment on the fence.
For once, when I reached for my trusty camera, it was there! (Not attached to my laptop in the process of transferring photos, as has happened in the past.)
He shook his tail about for a moment or two, and I quickly snapped a few photos from way back inside the lounge.
Then, with one final flip of the tail, Sparky was gone.
Luckily for him, my dogs Little Monkey and Mr Spaghetti Legs never even knew he was there!
