Bright-eyed and bushy-tailed

by Volker Weber

Our resident squirrel. Very hard to capture in the morning. This guy is fast ...


Der hätte sich ja wenigstens mal die Haare kämmen können, wenn er schon zum Foto-Shooting vorbei kommt.

In der Makro-Fotografie gibt es Leute die zu Eis-Spray greiffen ...

Die können richtig zutraulich werden. Hatte mal eins auf dem Bein sitzen. Putzige Tiere :)

So hows the red population doing in your neck of the woods, if you'll excuse the pun? Not that many left in the UK, although I did go see a few that live a little way down the road from my folks, in Formby, Merseyside.

It's all greys in rest of England. Bloody Americans, coming over here, stealing our nuts. ;)

Kerr - no problems with grey squirrels here. They are really quite rare. We've also got a red one in our garden :-)

In Toronto, most of the squirrels are black as this randomly selected flickr image shows: [flickr image]

You do see the occasional grey squirrel, but I can't remember seeing any squirrels that looked as red as Volker's friend.

@ken, I think that squirrel is a grey, that just happens to be black. Quick google... Yeah looks like toronto animal services think that most squirrels in Toronto are eastern greys.

Here is my squirrel picture, of an american squirrel last summer.

@Karl-Henry, A nice example of a fox squirrel there I believe. :)

Kerr Rainey, 2008-03-11

@Kerr, you are correct. They are called "Gray Squirrels", but they look black to me! :-)
