Secondary action

I've been looking at delayed secondary action in preparation for our presentation;

Delayed secondary action is used in order to create more life and movement within an action or hold, when moving a character from one action to the next, if one part arrives later (e.g the tail of a squirrel) then it allows the action to con
tinue on, making the sequence more believable.

Below is an image that I found showing the movement of a squirrel, here the secondary action is the movement of the tail as the body jumps, and the delayed secondary action is the movement of the tale once the squirrel has stopped moving it's body.

I used this image as a guide and created a short animated sequence showing the delayed secondary action:
