The curiosity of a squirrel is really an amazing thing. I don’t think there’s a nook or crany that they won’t explore given half a chance. They are masters of trees and if the forest is dense enough only a bird could cover more distance without touching ground. But on open ground they’re vulnerable. As I eased the big blue truck along the gravel road the fox squirrel must have perceived me as a threat and he stood up to get a better look. In this position he has nearly a 360 view of the world. A squirrel has to have great focal eyesight to accurately leap from branch to branch and their peripheral vision is almost as good. He stood in the spot like a furry garden gnome. I don’t think he even blinked for several minutes but as soon as I let my foot slip from the break pedal and the truck he broke from his stance and made his way to the closest tree in long bounds. In a gravity defying feat of acrobatics he ran a spiral pattern up a huge hickory tree and vanished like ghost. I have know doubts that those incredibly keen eyes remained fixed on the big blue truck as it rolled away in the distance.
