Critters Hi-Wire

Most everyday I see critters “hi-wire” when I look out my window overlooking the backyard. Many times I see a highwire act performed by a local troupe of gray squirrels running along the cable company’s fibre cable.

Yesterday I was out on my back porch with my camera when this fellow came scooting along and I just managed to catch him jump off at his exit. The local telephone pole at the far corner of the yard was his jumping off point or “terminus”. He quickly disappeared in my neighbor’s backyard after having jumped off and I lost him after that. As this picture shows he certainly was in a hurry to get wherever he was going!
