I've always admired the persistence of squirrels as they foiled every bird feeder I ever hung out. I especially love to watch them chase each other up and down and between trees.

That squirrel has interesting coloring. Seems like the ones I've seen are much more gray. He's been to the salon, I think.

this guy is particularly handsome and yes I love the way he has his hands/arms arranged!

j - he was patient and posed as I was holding a container of food! he knew!

z - I can't believe there are no squirrels on your island! e said they made it to maui! I'd think your little paradise wasn't nearly as far a swim!

s - low lights and high lights perhaps? wonder if the stylist takes nuts for payment?

He could inspire a children's book, I think. Such attitude!
