Tilly the Treecreeper

Not exactly a Treemouse, but definitely a Treecreeper Silkie. This is one of the times when I had the wrong camera. The Pany FZ1000 is easier to reset one handed than the EM1iii and I had to zoom with feet. Pany would have done a better job too.
The squirrel which Tilly had chased up the tree was looking down at her. They've played this game several times and she's been higher. You can see the bulges to the right of the trunk that she uses for purchase when she’s climbing Everest. Her head’s been level with mine and I’m 5’7!
Horses for courses - but you can't take all the gear out just for walking the dog! You've caught Tilly though, and it made me chuckle at her antics.

Maybe there’s a bit of squirrel in her !

@janturnbull she’s a total nutcase, but wonderful with it, a joy and delight once she gets her way!

@markp maybe it is because Silkies are Australian and they can jump like kangaroos. Certainly this little one can, quick jump to get to this height, then hang on.
