Yoga squirrel

The other day photographer Murray Head sent me the photograph below, taken in Central Park on December 3, 2008.

What in the world is that squirrel doing? I wrote to Murray. It was a rhetorical question.. Murray sent me an answer the next day, accompanied by graphic proof:

It is a yoga posture know as Bakasana. Or translated: Crane pose,
he replied.
