Woodland Path

Black squirrel

The squirrel is climbing a cross piece that stabilizes one of the legs on a rustic cedar fence along a conservation trail.

Sitting on the fence's top rail

Tuesday last was a wonderfully warm day, perfect for squirrels and humans to enjoy the outdoors.

Posing as "King of the Mountain"

I am linking to Good Fences HERE.

The squirrels around here are the fattest I have seen in many years. The one in your photos also looks like he is well feed.

Those black ones are the cutest squirrels ever. I'd love to see one someday.

We have a few over here too but you'd be lucky to glimpse one let alone photograph it. Neat little creatures.

This squirrel's domain.

I don't think that I've ever seen a black squirrel before.

We do not have Black Squirrels in the UK so this for me was a lovely close up capture and a lovely weathered fence to show him off.

llandudnopictures said...

Great shots, you did well to capture him so sharply!

Wow, this is the first black squirrel I've seen. Brilliant shots!

see you there! said...

I have never seen a black squirrel either, red and grey are common here. He looks sleek.

The devious rascal looks like he or she is in good shape for the winter.

Hi Tina,
What a beautiful little guy/gal!
I have never seen a Black Squirrel and I am delighted that you introduced us.

Have a Beautiful Day!

Peace :)

Lovely captures, and just my favorite kind of squirrel, next, or second best is the all white, albino ones!

Judy said...

He sure was willing to pose for you!! I think the last one is my favourite!!

Linda W. said...

Cute squirrel! You don't see black ones very often (certainly not where I live)

Birdman said...

Nuts!

Lois said...

I have seen white squirrels before, but never a black one. Very pretty!

Lynn said...

great shots you've taken, I've never seen a black squirrel. I so miss seeing squirrels here, the odd one isn't enough...

TexWisGirl said...

Sylvia K said...

I do love your black squirrels, EG!! They are indeed sleek as a black cat!!! I've never seen one before and your pics are wonderful as always!!

Halcyon said...

I think he wants more than just his picture taken. ;-)

RedPat said...

I've noticed that their tails are soooo bushy this year. I hope that doesn't mean we are in for a cold winter.

Ginny said...

These are excellent pictures, he is posing just for you!! I love seeing them, because we have only the grey ones. I have NEVER seen a black squirrel before! He is sleek and pretty. Kind of the Darth Vader of squirrels...

A Quiet Corner said...

Wish we had some of them out this way...he is gorgeous!...:)JP

Stephanie said...

He is a beaut! Love seeing these black squirrels. We don't see any here.

Ida said...

Oh my gosh he's adorable. I've never seen a black squirrel before but I like them. He does seem to be posing so nicely against that fence post for you.

Felicia said...

he is so pretty.

Hilary said...

Like Andy said, the black squirrels are quite well fed, this year. Even though they're also considered Easter Grey, I've always noticed that they usually look skinnier than the greys do. Not this year. And their tails are particularly bushy too, this year.

Grandma C said...

Cute squirrel, I like the first shot.

Randy said...

I love squirrels.

Michelle said...

Pretty cool to see a black squirrel!

Gail Dixon said...

I swear I did not know black squirrels even existed until this post. I need to get out more. What a beauty!

Malyss said...

First time I see a black squirrel!! How cute !

Indrani said...

So cute. :) I always find them curious and alert.

Kate said...

All scenes are worthy of photos;esp like the lone boat.

Marie said...

No better fence adornment anywhere! :-) Lovely little black squirrel!

Pamela Gordon said...

Sweet pictures of this black squirrel. The rustic fence is a perfect playground for him.
