Debbie’s one-word prompt for this week is ‘Up’. I originally had the intention of using the original of the photo I posted on January 1st this year, but it seems a little too soon, and then I remembered that I had taken these photos toward the end of November. The reason why I was looking up was because of this blurred little chap, jumping from treetop to treetop as though he didn’t have a care in the world. He’s a squirrel, by the way, but he was far too busy to pose for a photo, so I just had to grab any shot of him I could with my mobile phone. If you tilt your head to one side, and then adjust your focus you may just be able to make him out!

  1. A great up – thanks Tom
    In fact is a good match for a shadow I posted last night – I think the trees may be related 🙂

  3. Good picture Tom! 🙂

    We have squirrels here too, but also a lot of cats, so they don’t last long… 😦

    God Bless!

    1. I don’t see that many squirrels around here, strangely enough, Prenin… maybe there are cats here too that keep them away?
