A red squirrel
January 25, 2015


The American red squirrel is small (a tad larger than a chipmunk) and lively. This winter, a few have come around to visit, and among them, the one named Vivian stands out.

A red squirrel can have quite a temper, but they look like living toys.

And here's the reason why Vivian came about the name Vivian.

The fur of a red squirrel tends toward tan except for the vivid streak along the back and tail.

Photo note: I used a Pentax K3, with the SMC-D 60-250mm lens, for these photos taken on January 21, 2015.
