These first two pictures are a blur because Dante was moving so fast. I have posted them in the order that they took place, and I noticed that the squirrel is actually farther ahead in the first picture. It must have turned back somehow, and run directly into the red beast -- who just barely misses the capture!
Sometimes I think the squirrels do this just for the thrill of it, because they certainly seem to be fearless. Of course, in this picture, squirrelly knows that Dante can't go any further, and sits just out of reach, calmly eating his lunch.
Dante returns to his favourite tree, where another little black demon is hovering above.
Aha! There it is -- bold as ever!
Dante does the nonchalant thing, and just tries to ignore it.
But he is taunted yet again!
Dante decides not to let this distract him from having a good scratch.
He spots another demon on the approach. This saga has no end!
Tune in same place, another time for the next installment in this series.
