Your Sunday Squirrel

Although many squirrels look very similar, there are some who are just a bit different.  This fellow has a slightly bent left ear.  I see him often in the park.  He's really quite friendly, even though it looks like he's ready to bolt for the next tree.  I don't give squirrels nicknames.  Most of them are just too tough to tell apart.  But no, I wouldn't christen this guy "Bent Ear" or anything like that.  That seems a little too obvious.  It's like in Bad Santa when Thurman Merman asks Billy Bob about the elves' names.  Santa says something like: "How should I know?  I just call them all bub."  That's kind of how I keep track of the squirrels.  They're all bub.
