Fast Old Squirrel
He seemed to be preoccupied with an itchy paw while I hid behind a tree and got several bad pictures of him. The view I had wasn't very good with that tree on the left of the picture hiding him a little bit. I had to get a better position if I was going to get any good pictures at all. So I stepped just to my right and moved away from the tree that obscured my presence. I got this one picture before he saw me standing there.
He may have been a fox squirrel like I see many times a day, but with all of his gray fur he was a unique little guy. I've even seen other fox squirrels with patches of gray fur, but none were quite like him. Even though he's gone, I'll still never forget this unique little squirrel. I hope I see him again one day.
