Hybrid Squirrel

Another juvenile squirrel; from the back shading, I strongly suspect this is a red/grey hybrid.
It spent quite a while in that position before recovering enough composure to actually sit on the branch; I didn't see quite what caused the stress, though the squirrel was initially in a front-paws-only grip position, with the rest of it hanging down between the forks of the branch. I suspect a missed leap.
