Black Squirrel

Photogenic, pesky black squirrel

Yes, they DO create a lot of damage but they are also fun to watch. For sure they cause less chaos than humans do, though.  Just sayin'.

I am linking to Madge's Weekly Top Shot.

Wise comments about humans vs. squirrels, but I still am not enamoured of them. Good photo.

They are devious rascals!

How perfect for Chaos Never Ends Day!

We do not have squirrels where I live now. Maybe not enough of the right kind of trees? There are squirrels in the cemetery next door but in over ten years I have seen ONE on my property.

As you say, more fun to watch than to have.

my sis gets these in her yard in wis. so pretty!

Judy said...

Great portrait of a black squirrel. I have only seen one black squirrel and that was high up on a mountain in Colorado. I do enjoy watching them and you are so right about the human part.

I do not like squirrels always referring to them as tree rats, Had no idea there even was a black one! Great photo of him though.

I'd love to see the black ones--we only have the gray. I guess they do cause less chaos than humans. Good point! :) Super shot, EGC!

Kathy said...

They are definitely entertaining little varmints!

Nancy Claeys said...

I always gawk at the black squirrels when I go to town. This one is especially cute. :)

They are cute little devils! ;-)

Lisa Gordon said...

It is a rarity to see a black squirrel here, so this is a treat! He sure is a handsome fella.

Karen said...

We have more blacks than greys in our neighbourhood. I love squirrels, and have never had any damage as a result of them being in my yard.

Stephanie said...

Great top shot!

Madge Bloom said...

He's a cutie... I don't think we have black squirrels here in Washington... Thank you for coming by sharing your creative photography on the Weekly Top Shot, #108!

Robyn G said...

I don't think I have ever seen a black squirrel before. Neat capture!

cieldequimper said...

I didn't even know black squirrels existed until now. Should I be ashamed of myself?!

Gemma Wiseman said...

Those little paws gathered together make this little guy look so cute.

Viola said...

we do not have black squirrels here, at least I haven't seen any.. :)

Beautiful, both your photo and the squirrel! :)

Rose said...

I always wonder if animals 'think' about us...like we do them. I am sure that our Bubbie thinks...I can see the wheels spinning sometimes when he is looking for something to get into.

So I wonder just how much wild animals think/reason out things. Do they get aggravated at us chasing them with our cameras, or do they even realize we are.

Pretty fellow!

edenhills said...

Love black squirrels! They are so pretty, and we dont' have any where I'm at.
