of a Red Squirrel
|Jan. 4, 2015|
Red squirrels (Tamiasciurus hudsonicus) are small, but what they lack in size is made up by tremendous energy. In that, reds are similar to eastern chipmunks (Tamias striatus).
I had the opportunity to photograph a red squirrel and a chipmunk in similar positions, and that's my first comparison.
| ||The second comparison features a red squirrel and a gray squirrel (Sciurus carolinensis). Note that the corncob is different, but the size proportion is identical (matched via the cob holder).|
In terms of personality, a gray squirrel is positively sedate when compared with a red.
Photo note: The photos were taken with a Pentax K3, with the Pentax SMC-DA* 60-250 lens, during December 2014.
