Windowpane Wednesday: It’s Hot

How hot is it?

It’s so hot, the squirrels are melting.

Motor Man saw this from our kitchen window recently and alerted me that it would be a good Windowpane Wednesday post.

A few days after I took these pictures, a similar photo appeared in our local paper. Apparently, this is called ‘planking’. In hot weather, squirrels  expose their bellies to the ground to cool their bodies. We have previously seen rabbits do this, but never squirrels. They also will do this in the winter to warm their bodies.

Just another new sighting in our yard wild kingdom.
