Garden Tuesday – More White-tailed Squirrel

More pictures of the white-tailed squirrel.

Yes, I know they are not very good.

Still waiting for someone to buy me a telephoto lens.

Hint.  Hint.

Love the subtle hint for the telephoto lens. Do you think he's reading;D

Love these pictures, and I had to go look them up on Wikipedia, and can't find another photo of one.
I did learn, however, that there are all white (non albino) squirrels as well. Learn something new everyday!
You need to do some heavy duty hinting before next Christmas! :)

I saw a couple of plain fox squirrels in my backyard this morning- warmer weather gets them moving around..

After I went digital, I decided to use point & shoot cameras. I have a Leica 35mm camera, and if I need fabulous shots, the Leica with Kodak film works well. I don't need to spend more money! That said (I must lecture myself now and again), I like your friend the squirrel.

Said squirrel seems mighty proud of his plumage! See how he struts about? Hope you get your lens!

Well Well---I've never seen a white-tailed squirrel before... They can't hide, can they???? Reminds me of our white-tailed deer up here.
Hugs,

I think they are great, although I don't know that I have ever seen a White tailed squirrel here in Oregon.. must be warm blooded critters.

Adorable! I wanted nothing more when I was a kid than to have a squirrel for a pet. I can't say that that's changed much.

He is so cute! I hope you get one of those lenses soon! :)

For all you macro lens fans out there, I learned this little trick on National Geographic's photography page: detach your lens from the camera body and flip it around. You have to make sure the seal is tight and focusing can be tricky, but once you get the hang of it, it works like a charm - and it costs nothing! I've use this trick for a lot of really cool shots - especially of plant life. (Just a note - doesn't work on all cameras. I've used it on both my Canon Rebel and Canon 10D, but my friend couldn't get it to work on her Nikon dSLR)

I love the squirrel - he's quite a cutie! When I lived in Michigan, we had black squirrels with red tails and I thought they were the prettiest things. This white-tailed fella, however, just might be prettier.

Thanks for sharing!

My chinchilla could kick your albino butt squirrel's butt :) ;) :)

For $20 I won't tell everyone that you caught that squirrel and dipped it's tail in bleach.

Ok I'm leaving before you hit me!
