Looks like the way the reds dance about the feeder in my garden! You have a much more natural looking perch though Grin

It looks like it is riding on the wooden equivalent of the hover boards in 'Back to the future' - perhaps them squirrels are smarter than we think?

A great shot - it made me smile even as a thumbnail and is better at a larger size.Grin
