When the whole Festive Season gets a little too much for you, take a tip from Sparky the squirrel; chill out and relax.
Talk about taking a chill pill, I think Sparky must have swallowed the whole packet!
I saw this little chap hop up onto the top of my fence. He tried out a position on the first gate post. Not finding this to his liking, he sauntered along the top of the gate, pausing to have a scratch at the next pole. Then he stretched himself out to catch a little sun.
Although it is summer here and temperatures are often in the mid to high thirties, (I quickly specify Centigrade here for my American friends!) there has been a strong wind most days (up to 12 m/s – 27 mph) which (fortunately) cools it down.
Obviously it was a little too cool for Sparky, hence the sunbathing chillax session.
I have to add, that it really doesn’t look all that comfortable!
post script: I like that he feels safe enough to stretch out here on my fence and take a short nap. He’d be safer in a tree, but he wouldn’t catch the rays then.
