My Best Black Squirrel Photos Ever
It was still the fox squirrels that came right up to me, but the black squirrels didn't run away. The gray squirrels still seemed to hang back a bit. They are all braver than they are in my forests, but the behavior compared to each other is still very similar to that of my familiar forest friends.
I took several pictures of this little guy, but I selected the two that I consider to be the best. They are all similar, so these two pretty much cover them all. I wish I had a cute little tale to go along with this account of this black squirrel, but I've already told you that story. I guess I'll just have to settle with the pictures and what I have here.
The few days that took me to this far away place where I got these pictures also saw me with a little bit of trouble. It's been very hot up until yesterday. I was out a little too long and the heat got to me. I ended up sick from it, so I had to stay inside for awhile. That's just a warning that even if you're prepared, which I was, extreme heat can get the best of any of us.
I have another look at the place I was over at Nature Center Magazine. Photos like that will probably never find their way here. I was at the place where the Detroit River ends and Lake Erie begins. A very beautiful place. Our Great Lakes are so big that you can't see the opposite shore. Even with the heat, I had a wonderful time.
