One of our garden Grey Squirrels (sciurus carolinensis) taking advantage of those ubiquitous red berries on our tree.

    He looks hungry – I tried my luck this morning who was much less cooperative. I do like the added color from the berries.

  • Thanks Jay! Hey these guys belong to you in the USA! I must admit though, I don’t think our native Reds would live in suburbia like these opportunistic Grey guys and I do love them! ;o)

    Great shot…mind you they get a different kind of shot round here…the resident of Eden are asked to report any sitings of the grey squirrel to protect our native reds.

  • Well the Reds are our native squirrel, but I don’t intend to go round shooting any Greys – it isn’t their fault some idiot from the US brought them over and set them free!! Thanks for the nice comment!
