STOPS ALONG THE WAY

EASTERN GREY SQUIRREL

26 Comments

Before the snow arrived in mid-December there were still pine cones and seeds for the taking. Between storing food for the winter ahead, this eastern grey squirrel stopped for a bite. The trees were bare and provided little colour to warm the scene. I liked the way the black and white treatment brought out the detail and texture.

  3. Lovely image. The squirrel looks quite intense. I guess they must wrap themselves in their luxurious tails when bedding down in their shelters.

  4. Yes, I like the textures here too, Belinda. Love the posture of the squirrel, as well as the different textures on its tail and body, and the limb, too.

  6. Very under-appreciated animals, Grey squirrels are: apparently they’re extremely intelligent and good at solving puzzles; although I believe I heard that Grey squirrels are invasive species in the UK.

  8. Very sharp – every hair on the tail is detailed. Nicely done. Squirrels have to plan ahead for hard times in winter. Our local squirrel (Lincoln) came by for a visit a while back and I put some hazelnuts at the base of the tree where he used to bring the ones he “stole” in the fall. They disappeared quite quickly. I’m sure he has many hiding places for them.
