just came out to the lab annex
a squirrel was on a dead branch of a giant maple in the backyard
the squirrel decided to pounce a fly on the dead branch
the dead branch decided it was sick of the tree's shit and was going solo on the ground

squirrels are pretty hecking agile for a critter with an acorn-sized brain.
