I love watching these tiny squirrels around the bird feeder, Trin. Although they are not afraid of the much larger gray squirrels, they are cautious around so many birds, for they have sharp beaks.

Thanks, Trin, yes this little one was very cute.

Thank you very much for your kind rating and nice comment, cjlin!

Best wishes,

I've never seen a squirrel that looks like this... how cute! It's like he has a Mohawk! :-) Great capture!

Best wishes, Marlene

Hello, Marlene, thanks very much for your nice response. This little guy is just one of the American red squirrel, the smallest of our species. I've never been able to capture a face straight on. When it's cold squirrels wrap the tails over their bodies, that's why it looks like he has a Mohawk, LOL.

Thanks, Patty, I appreciate your comment and LIKE, but actually: I got lucky to get this shot. I was watching the birds by the feeder and this little guy showed up.

Have a good weekend!

Thank you very much for your visit and LIKE, J.C, I am pleased that you enjoyed this little squirrel.

Freut mich sehr, dass dir dieses kleine Kerlchen auch gefaellt, Dirk, vielen Dank fuer die nette Auszeichnung!



Anne W. on February 24, 2013

Das ist wirklich niedlich und bekommt ein YSL!!! Auch dieses Kerlchen grinst eindeutig, ihr bekommt einen tollen Frühling! Selbst wenn ich die großen Grauen hier zu Gesicht bekommen sollte, werde ich sie fotografieren. Die Tiere sind ja nicht verantwortlich dafür, wo sie für ihr Überleben sorgen müssen ... Für heute habe ich dich jetzt genug zugetextet :-) Morgen muss ich früh raus. Deshalb schreibe ich jetzt "gute Nacht" und grüße für heute ein letztes Mal über den Ozean, Anne
