    These European Red Squirrels (smaller than their American grey or black counterparts) are extremely skittish and in no way near as tame as the American squirrels are. I had to take these through the glass of the back door. And as soon as it saw me behind the door, it was gone in a flash.

    He is so cute! I love the ear tufts! And that tail! His tail is much more full than his gray relatives also. Really nice shots. You're lucky you are able to get a decent photo through the door glass, my house has old glass in the windows and it has a bit of a cloudiness to it which really makes it impossible for me to get shots of the birds and squirrels at my feeders.

    Well, I feared the fact that my windows aren't the cleanest for most of the time would show much, but thankfully if doesn't ;) ;) ;).
    The European Red Squirrel is a lot smaller than its American cousin, too, and yes, aren't their tails and ear tufts cute? :lovey:

    Nicely done! You really get a sense of how skittish and alert it is by its posture. (Sooo cute too). And the colour is gorgeous

    Very cute little guy. I like his ears, much different than our American ones.
