Like the squirrel you are the playful trickster of the trees. You bring nature with you and in the significance of the picture, appreciate how opportunity for life and growth can come from many an angle, even while it closes in another.
"An upsidedown wire heart
Being sucked into a periscope
Still the mind is dull
Like you need another excuse"
… a theory is primarily a form of insight, i.e. a way of looking
at the world, and not a form of knowledge of how the world is….
.. all our different ways of thinking are to be considered as
different ways of looking at the one reality, each with some
domain in which it is clear and adequate…. - David Bohm
Your avatar is of two similar but competing machines. They compete because they are differently branded and, more importantly, their branding is visible. And even while one is always more powerful than the other, it cannot remove it's opposite.
A. You constantly desire a rival you can best in your life, be this a person, a goal, or another side of your self. You desire this besting be visible to others.
B. You feel oppressed by a rival that is consistently more powerful than you, be this a person, a goal, or another side of your self. As you are ashamed, the visibility of this rivalry (shown by the branding of the two machines) affronts you.
^The person in your avatar is wearing a thick coat but she has bare legs- this is contradictory. It probably means that she's indecisive and conflicted, and also she really hates most types of weather. She's also enigmatic and introspective.
This is symbolic of a person who is inherently sensitive and feels unprotected and vulnerable against the harshness of the world. Therefore she is compelled hide within the bounds of a dragon-like outfit to create a feeling of safety and well-being against potential predators. Note that the costume is red, the brightest and most eye-catching colour to the human, and most animals on earth, eye, which among with other vivid colours, is used often to denote danger, bloodshed or otherwise a capability to inflict danger upon the foe. This is of course, false, just as a hoverfly pretends to sting like a wasp.
