Why do you keep bugging me? by 

A red fox squirrel in Newton Iowa Summer 2013. Caught with my Canon t4i and Ef 70-300mm 1:4-5.6 L on landscape mode due to my vision.

The fox squirrel, also known as the eastern fox squirrel or Bryant’s fox squirrel, is the largest species of tree squirrel native to North America. Wikipedia
Scientific name: Sciurus niger
Lower classifications: Delmarva fox squirrel

Dedicated to all of us that find peace in nature! Nothing is more relaxing for me that a good walk. Even if we don’t see a thing to shoot.

    Wonderful :)
    I’m just drawing a cartoon squirrel – coming up soon :)

  • Thank you kindly Dennis! I love squirrels but respect that they are territorial. Some of them get mad at us and we back off.

    What a sweetie!! You really got an amazing capture of this little fellow. We put out food for the squirrels in our yard and even have white squirrels. We live in Transylvania County, North Carolina – home of the White Squirrel – I swear it’s true. We even have a White Squirrel Festival!!!

  • Oh how cool! I have heard of a white squirrel near Maytag Park in Newton Iowa. We will be watching for him in the spring. We are currently at 2F in Newton and yesterday was 49F…2 is just really cold! I would love to see pictures of the white squirrel festival. Do you go? I will have to poke around your portfolio more. :0)
