Drinking and climbing

brook dwelling squirrel

This squirrel could be anywhere-but it was first observed drinking from the muddy waters of the Brook this morning, unperturbed by the human and his dog watching. Throughout the process, even when the human reached for his camera, it continued to drink, watching carefully. As fate would have it, just at the point of taking the photograph, the squirrel decided to scamper at lightning speed up the tree trunk ( above, photographed), returning to the heights and the accompanying  caws of alarmed crows.
