Eastern Fox Squirrel

Initially this eastern fox squirrel was enjoying something in the road... perhaps roadkill? When I approached to closely he/ she ran to this wood fence and ran across the boards. Luckily I was able to snap a few shots before a car coming interrupted our photo shoot. Happy Crittering~

I'm glad the little fellow got out of the road. The Fox squirrels we have here are not so shy.

Glad to see one that isn't roadkill itself! So many get hit around here. They are so bad at crossing roads. Looks cute on the fence!

They are running around like mad, aren't they? Ours are very hungry after a long winter.

Don't you hate it when that happens? Just this afternoon I was trying to get a picture of some unknown bird, stopped in the middle of a country road. Of course a car had to come and ruin my fun. Nice capture.

Al said...

How cute! I'm always impressed with how they can run along fences like that.

Karen S. said...

A lovely action shot! Pretty location too!

Never miss a free meal!

I do like the fence highway the squirrel is using.

They sure can scamper off quickly, can't they?!

Great shot of the squirrel on the fence.

People used to eat them a lot in days gone by....apparently they're very tasty, if not a big meal! We have as resident one here who is very, very shy, unlike the ones in London, who will eat out of your hand.

lovely squirrel, the American grey squirrel was introduced over here and has been a real problem for our native red squirrels, but still a cute little animal!
