Squirrel Friends

(Norm the Golden-mantled Ground Squirrel above; Western Gray Squirrel below)
Backyard squirrel friends from Truckee...The Douglas's and the Gray Squirrel didn't make regular appearances, so I was glad they finally started showing up late in the game. The California Ground Squirrel and a cohort would swing by pretty often. And Norm? Well, he staked out his ground early on and stayed around more or less all day long.

Love the Golden-mantleds. Cool WHWO experience too...I had Parakeet Auklets jumping on me this summer, it was great!

All of these are too cute for words! That first shot is especially good; it looks like a studio portrait.
