Squirrel Attack

Squirrels (or perhaps it's only one squirrel) have decided to use our deck's fence as a hopping-off point to our roof. And from there, they jump to a nearby mulberry tree.

Today I was surprised by one of them as I was adjusting the gate to allow a breeze onto the deck. As I turned to my right, I came face to face with the furry little fellow and before I even realized what was happening, his little arms shot out and he seemed to jump at me as I must have gasped or screeched.

He leaped over my head onto the roof behind me, missing me by a good foot. As he scampered to the apex of the roof and jumped to the mulberry, I laughed. I think he was annoyed I had opened the gate, forcing him to leap instead of being able to just scramble onto the roof.
