Red Squirrel in black

I have seen this pair of squirrels in a park. One is melanistic and the other has also an unusual dark color. They were shy, but also very curious.

  3. Cute squirrels, as long as they are somewhere else and not cleaning my nut trees of every single nut and jumping on our suet bird feeder. The lighter one has interesting tufts of hair on its ears.

    Hast du die denn in Deutschland aufgenommen oder sonstwo auf diesem Planeten?

  9. I miss having Squirrels in my garden, they are so active and cheeky, except when hibernating of course. Your two squirrels are beautiful.Wren x

  10. Oh, how fun! I find squirrels to be so entertaining--especially when the juveniles start scattering and chattering about in the late spring. And to find uniquely colored ones is extra exciting!
