Squirrel Selection

I just want to cuddle this squirrel.

 

An add for shampoo perhaps! 
 

Chubby Chops.
 

I think there is something feline looking about this squirrel.
 
This squirrel was looking right at me.

 

Cheeky fellow joined me for breakfast.
 

Cute bear cub look-alike.
 

 
They really are quite different in appearance from one another, and it makes it even more enjoyable to watch them.

Giga said...

Ona jest cudna, ale trochę bałabym się ją przytulić, patrząc na jej pazurki. Pozdrawiam.
She is marvelous, but a little bałabym to hug her, looking at her nails. Yours.

They like the Walnuts I give them, perhaps this accounts for their shiny coats!

Such an absolutely gorgeous series of photos! I love squirrels! I get a kick out of the red one with the extra tufts of hair on its ears. I have never seen one like that here in Montreal.

Breathtaking said...

Kleine Waldameise

Hello!:) Thank you so much! The squirrels that visit my garden have become quite tame now over the years. They know that they will always find nuts here.

Thank you for passing by.

Breathtaking said...

Echotravels
Thank you!:)It's always a pleasure to click away when I see them, and they never fail to make cute photos.

Stuart Price said...

Very nice. The Red Squirrels in Hokkaido are not as red as in western Europe. Actualy I can recall seeing some in central Europe that were black!

Stiletto ElsieXie said...

This squirrel has a lovely red colouring with a nice sheen in it. The hair on the ears seems to have been gelled. The squirrels in my garden has a dull brown colour.

The second squirrel has a baby face. It looks like a baby too!

Breathtaking said...

Stuart Price
Thank you Stuart!:)Here, the squirrels range from red to very dark brown, almost black, with black tails.

Breathtaking said...

Stiletto ElsieXie

Ours are also dark brown, but most are red.

Maria said...

The colors are so vibrant and the light falls so nicely!

Angelikas Photographic Sketchbook said...

Oh, the red squirrel. How lovely! Here you hardly see any of them as the grey squirrels have completely taken over. But these little red fellows are so much cuter...

Breathtaking said...

Maria
Thank you Maria!:)I was pleased with the light, and am beginning to realize how vital it is to get it right.

See you soon!

Breathtaking said...

Hi Sonjia!

Lucky squirrels, for having you as a neighbour ... and luck you for the company and free entertainment they provide.
Great photos!

Have a good weekend

Lasse said...

Cuties :-))

NickMorgan said...

Lovely pictures. The Red Squirrel is so much nicer than the Grey. Sadly the Reds have all been chased away by the Greys from here, but it is lovely seeing them in the Highlands.

Breathtaking said...

MastHoliday
Thank you! Our squirrels do have shiny coats,... must be the wallnut cake I give them!!:D

Breathtaking said...

Ajay Kumar
Thank you so much, and thank you for your visit.:)

Breathtaking said...

salma
Thank you Salma!:)I feel privileged to see these creatures every day, and never take it for granted.

Breathtaking said...

vitorchuvashortstories

Hi Vitor!:)
Because the sqirrels have become so friendly I have been trying to get them to eat out of my hand. Perhaps it will happen one day, but until then,I'm content to watch them eating from the feeders.
As you say, it is mutual enjoyment.
Have a nice day.

Breathtaking said...

Lasse
Asolutely right Lasse!:) Little Rascals!!

Breathtaking said...

NickMorgan
Thank you Nick!:)I think the grey squirrel is also cute, but a tad more agressive. I saw them in a park on a trip to the UK several years ago, and stopped to watch their antics. Always nice to see!

Ela said...

She is so sweet :)
Greetings, Ela

Breathtaking said...

Ela
Yes! I also think they can look sweet.

Thank you for your visit.:) I have tried to visit you but have not been able to get through to your blog.:(

Chris Rohrer said...

What a beautiful squirrel!!! Reminds me of our red squirrels from the midwest. I love the tufts:)

Breathtaking said...

Chris Rohrer
I remember your post about every single bird having their own distinctive look, and why not, we do, and so do the squirrels. Some are really beautiful, and I also love those tufts!

Joop Zand said...

I love squirrels. Have you seen one down here but I have not had that opportunity. Foxes and squirrels are my favorite animals, then dogs, of course.
