A female American Red Squirrel has taken up residence in our large yellow bird house and she has been so much fun to watch and photograph! 🙂
My hope is there’s a nest of baby red’s inside the house and I’ve been spending lots of time making sure ‘momma red’ is comfortable with me and the camera. (Placing peanuts at the entrance has earned me mucho brownie points).
Here is a fine capture of her as she sits on the roof of the house in gorgeous late afternoon light. She just finished cleaning her face when she turned towards the camera, sporting this classic female pose.
My, what a gorgeous girl! 🙂
