The little red squirrel has been visiting for the past few days, which is probably why my productivity level has plummeted. I’ve been watching, oohing, ahhing, and constantly squealing, “OMG – it’s so cute!” I just can’t get enough of watching the little guy. It seems like he (?) is finally getting used to me because yesterday he stayed on the deck when I slid the door open and stuck my camera lens out. He even thought about taking a peanut out of my hand but decided against it.
I ended up with a whole slew of photos and, with such an adorable subject, it’s hard to narrow it down to just a few! Click on any photo to enlarge it.
The much larger gray squirrels don’t seem to mind this little guy invading their territory, although they are curious about him. Their curiosity usually leads to them getting chased away though. Little Red doesn’t take kindly to anyone getting in his personal space, even if he’s in their territory to begin with. He’s a feisty little thing!
