Today was unique in that there was a big gray squirrel wrapped around one of the feeders. The big gray ones are big enough to do that. In the feeder next to that one was a tiny red squirrel — a perfect little guy in bright autumn colors. Never have I seen these two kinds of squirrel right next to one another on adjacent feeders, but they must have made a deal. I wanted to get a shot of both of them just about touching each other but I couldn’t get them into one frame.
I could not get a single picture of the big grey one. He was effectively hidden by the feeder but I got some almost-perfect shots of the little red one These little ones are about the same size as flying squirrels — except for the non-flying part.
