This squirrel has some reach! Who knew squirrels were so stretchy? Erik Bartlett, who took this wonderful shot, writes: "I took this photo of a gray squirrel stretching out to reach a drink of water, and it was the first time I have seen it happen over many years. That water is meant for the birds, but I don't mind sharing." Would you like to see your nature photo featured as the TreeHugger photo of the day?
