Wordless Wednesday - Hang in There

This is what happens when a beagle barks at an unsuspecting squirrel. The old boy slides off the fence-top and hangs in there...

...until the beagle goes to the other side of the fence, then it's up and over!

Lie low and wait...wait...wait.

Great shots.

When I saw the first one, I thought..."oh, a bear cub..." The close-up confused me, until I scrolled down and saw the rest of the post.

Man, I cannot wait to get my camera...

I cannot wait for you to get your camera, too, WC.

A bear cub would be an intensely awesome sight hanging from a city fence, I have to tell you. That would make for a Wordless Week instead just a Wordless Wednesday. Ha.

I thought it was a bear cub, too! Just a little squirrel, but darn cute! Great capture!

At first I thought he was peeking through the slider! Poor guy....Now i know he's on his way to his therapist!

These are great shots Cherie, that top picture is so perfect on how they are so coordinated. I wish I could be a flexable as a squirrel!

Great shot! Ours are too busy taunting the cats through the windows to allow nice poses. They zip past each window causing the kitties to tear around like little imbeciles trying to catch them:)

Funny....that's also what happens to me when Beagle barks at me!

Good job getting that squirrel to pose so well! Ours here no longer fret much - the dog's blind and deaf and the cat knows (from bitter experience, I'm guessing) the squirrels are just a bit too muscular and toothy to handle.

Too funny. My children always try to scare me like that ..Maybe I could use this technique to hide from them... Great photo. thanks for sharing.

What amazing pictures. I often wonder why we don't find more broken squirrel bodies lying about - they sure can hang on the edge.

Cherie, just read your comment elsewhere about current life events... thinking of you!

Love the pictures....and the sentence Lie low and wait. A lot of wisdom there!

These are amazing creatures and I guess I learned to love them too.
