I do love the squirrels of my area of the country. The most prevalent in Kent is the Black Squirrel. This one was on my deck checking out the barrel planter, which is empty at this time of year. The sun is bright on the black fur making it look lighter but I loved the pose. The Grey Squirrel is the next prevalent one and on any day I can see either on my walks. This little guy had a Maple seed for a snack.
The Fox Squirrel is not as prevalent but are in the area. This one was eating it's prize while I golfed in PA last year.
This is a common member of the squirrel family that is hard to capture because they are so fast. The smallest of the family, the Chipmunk. It is the only one with stripes. This one was along the Cuyahoga River and its quick motions drew me to the hiding place.
This is my new prize from my trip to CVNP this past weekend. It is a small sized squirrel with a great color. It is a Red Squirrel and the first I've captured on camera. It makes me so happy to share this one with you.
Tom asked to show a mixture of the Black and Grey Squirrel so here is a crossbread from last year. It is neither Black nor Grey Squirrel. You can see him hiking with the new baby if you click to check his post.
I hope you enjoyed my Wednesday post on squirrels of NE Ohio.
