This young Fox Squirrel was born in the huge Ash Tree in
my backyard this past summer in northeast Iowa. USA
I call her snowflake because she always seems to
have snowflakes on her little face!! She’s so cute!! :o)

    Looks as if she’s been foraging (and now she’s hoping you’ll take pity on her)! Well done, Lori!

    So soft looking. Is it a Red Squirrel? The fur hints at it being a red one. Awesome capture

  • Thank you so much, Ann!! We don’t have Red Squirrels around here only Fox Squirrels
    and a few Grey Squirrels . . . this one is a Fox Squirrel!!
