Hello, Spider Squirrel!

While at my desk this morning, I suddenly heard a continuous grappling sound behind the window glass. A squirrel, climbing the screen mesh, came to see me. It first went up the screen, then down, then toward me and stared.

If it could, it would have probably said "hello." But it carried something in its mouth - perhaps, a mushroom - and seemed smarter than the Aesop's crow.

Tired of our staring contest, the squirrel bailed out shortly after. The way, it comfortably crawled the netting, made me think of a spider. And there it was - the Spider Squirrel.

    1. Thank you for the compliment. I try my best to entertain you, guys, once in a while. Good reviews, such as yours, are stimulating... :) Although, I don't always have time to post, I will try doing it more often.
