spacer to force bottom edge extention
Slideshow: the impass
This short 3-image slideshow features a squirrel who was all about protecting its hoagy bounty. It was walking the top of the fence enroute to a garage roof that was a few feet to my left which was easy passage to the massive oak tree where this squirrel had its nest. The closer it came to me, the more cautious it became until we only about three feet apart. At that point it stopped, assessed the situation, and decided to climb down the inside of the fence on the other side and continue its trek to the nest with a short detour on the ground and then back up the fence to where it could jump to the roof and then the tree.
