HEY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! That's where WHISKERS is!
I wondered when the lil fella/galla would show up again! Been a LONG winter Roy!
Glad you caught this guy/gal, even though its fur is not the best yet!
Nice PoV, good close-up and love the reflection of the blue sky in its eye! Well done, Jay
PS Small nit; we have a bit of a tight crop at the toes. Perhaps you have more toe in your archive and can do a RP... Just a thought!
Great photo! I'd like to make a correction... The scientific name of the North American red squirrel is Tamiasciurus hudsonicus. The name Sciurus vulgaris is the European red squirrel.
