I saw this squirrel from some distance away….the shots had all manner of visual distractions to either side of the squirrel atop the fence (focus/blurring issues). So the shots are severely cropped, contrasted and sharpened. The Grey Squirrel sat there for the longest time and then scratched under its forearm, before scurrying away to the right. Still, I wanted to share this little guest I see running his route up the tree…across the garage roof…onto the fence top…down the fence to the next tree…gather and return…several times a day.
“Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be
satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience.”
