I watched this little guy all summer long last year.... I was so surprised that he could get around as well as the others without his tail.

    Fantastic shot, Maurie!! Imagine that, 2 atonce. This one is frame-worthy (or even National Georgraphic).

    He must have been Michael..... because he was not effected by it.... I always thought they used their tail to manuvre around.... didn't seem to phase him.

    Fantastic photo of the hummers together and amazing about the one without a tail. He has adapted very well to having no tail.

    This little guy must have a way to compensate for having no tail. He seems to be managing as effortlessly as his friend. Great capture, Maurie.

    Oh the poor little thing without its tail...I wonder what happened to it. We have a handicapped squirrel who comes to our feeder and its balance is bad but he manages to climb up the post and wobbles back and forth while it is eating.
