About This Image

black squirrel holding a horse chestnut beside our driveway, - what they do is "arrange" the large chestnut so that they can carry it in their mouths the best way possible, - they turn the chestnut until their teeth can grip a softer part of the nut properly, then they rush off to hide the chestnut : )
captured from the open front window with telephoto lens

Nice capture of this black squirrel,Alandra. He does look quite content sitting there preparing for the winter weather.

thanks Tania, that's very sweet of you :) Am going to be up and running soon again, with my desktop (let's hope). Am afraid I've lost quite a lot of photos etc.

Alandra they are all new to me. You have so many wonderful photos I think it would take me a year to look at each one properly. We are all looking forward to you submitting more photos.

thanks both of you, Don and Beverly. I liked the way the light is shining thru his little ears in this shot also : )

Nice job with the squirrel and his nuts. I like his little pink ears.

thanks May, - interesting about the naked grey squirrels also, have never seen those. The black squirrels fur seems so nice and shiny.

Alandra - I've never seen a black squirrel. What a beautiful animal. I've raised naked grays and reds, but no fox squirrel, which is native here, nor a black. Great shot.

Great capture of the squirrel! Carol
