I saw this squirrel scurry to its Guard Squirrel position when I was a block away. it never budged as I took pics.
the smallest animals can strike the fiercest poses.
my scariest time cycling was when I surprised a 5-oz chihuahua in his front yard. I was sure my ankle was a goner. if I had tried to kick this "dog", my foot would've swung too high to touch it.
of course, we could be wiped out by a virus. but I digress...
