Red Friend


I usually do not like squirrels, but I have to admit these red ones with tufty ears are pretty cute. I also caught this one at the feeder in my MiL's backyard, it was also taken with my new zoom.

Confidential to my husband: Happy Birthday!!!

Il est beau ! Our native red squirrels are giving way to the grey ones unfortunately, good you caught this beauty!

It's probably wondering where the food is hidden. Lots of snow!

Cute little bugger! He must know how to get up to your bird feeder, non?

I don't think I've ever seen a red squirrel in the wild in the UK - they greys took over a long time ago unfortunately.

Squirrels and I don't get along. At least the gray squirrels in Connecticut. Not sure I am up to giving the scrawny red squirrels a chance . . .

That ones a cutie, I would have to make sure I fed it the good stuff so it would come back.

The squirrel colour is amazing! Great contrast to the snow. Wonderful capture.
Belated congratulations to your husband.

I love squirrels even though I know they're nature's little bandits--but that red squirrel is especially striking! And happy bday to your DH!
