It's Sunday and Dante is definitely not at ease. In fact, he's on high alert! You can see the focus in his eye as he peeks around the tree. His pupil dilates widely as he spies the object of his desire.
(Biggify for maximum exposure to the eye of the hunter.)
And then it was gone! Look at the difference in his eyes in this second picture. The killer stare has completely evaporated.
Dante has reacquired his target.
He's beginning to hunker down.
Now he's fully hunkered (and what a hunker, hunker he is, too!). And the killer look is back in force.
This is a very short video that reveals the thrill of the chase. But alas, not the capture.
OK, Dante! Stand down and at ease. It's Sunday after all, and both you and that squirrel deserve a rest. This neverending story will repeat itself tomorrow, and the day after that, and that day after that ...
