Expressive Tails

"Who goes there?"

Demurely, "Who, me?!"

Exclamation point!!!

? Question mark ?

Playful


Crack that whip!

Goofy.




Hunker down for the good stuff.

"Just leave me be!"

Ever cute! Our cat has a tail usually in a question mark shape!

Kate said...

Had to laugh when I saw these photos because it reminds me of a poem by an Italian poet, Humbert Wolfe, about these rascals:

The Grey Squirrel

Like a small grey
coffee-pot,
sits the squirrel.
He is not

all he should be,
kills by dozens
trees, and eats
his red-brown cousins.

The keeper on the
other hand,
who shot him, is
a Christian, and

loves his enemies,
which shows
the squirrel was not
one of those.

Gayle said...

I love the whip and the goofy... i am sure that tail is telling a tale or making a statement or a warning to his other friends. the ones without the camera HEE HEE HEE

I think you must pay your squirrels to model. :-)

Chandra Eswaran said...

Nice tail they tell.
Seems the cats can't claim to be the only ones who can do the question mark gesture with the tail, can they now? :)
Have a Wonderful Day, Theresa!
Peace :)

I've relocated 9 so far this season (working on number 10 right now as I write this). This is a record season for these buggers.

You got him in every conceivable position that would show his tail. It makes a funny and very good series.

The Queen Jester said...

Squirrels are so adorable and that tail is fluffy and full of expression. Gives a new meaning to bright eyed and bushy tailed.

Debbie said...

Hi Theresa, That is a reason why squirrels rarely chatter - they speak sign language with their tails. Expressive creatures. Have a super nice weekend!

They amaze me how quick they can flick those tails!

Amy Franks said...

That is a long tail and they are definitely something we don't get here :-)

Stephanie Faris said...

Someone tried to tell me we just got our first squirrel out here in the area where we live. I pointed out my dog watches squirrels every day and she said it's the same squirrel. One squirrel. Seems hard to believe to me!

Mariette VandenMunckhof-Vedder said...

Dearest Theresa,
They use their tail really well for all sorts of body language!
Enjoy your Sunday and sending you hugs,
Mariette

Amazing tails! Now that you point them out, I'll be watching our squirrel tails more closely.

Pietro and Cynthia said...

Paul said...

The position of the tail and the set of the ears give away much of what is going on in the mind of these bold little "Tree Rats"!

Rita said...

I could watch squirrels all day. :)

Linda said...

My, those are fine-looking tails!
