    Are those considered "fox' squirrels like we have here in TN?

    No, these are a smaller squirrel, a bit bigger than a Chipmunk.

    This is where an old manual focus lens shines Robin, although this one is very sensitive. Very heavy also. ;)

    Ah, red squirrels. :) We used to have the normal ones, fox squirrels I think, but red squirrels moved in and scared them off. Then they ate holes in our soffit and moved into the attic.

    My dad shot all that he could (gun, not camera), but that ended up breeding a smaller strain, since he couldnt ever hit the smallest ones. :lol:

    Now we've acquired a cat who's an excellent hunter, and she's gotten a fair few. The regular big squirrels are moving back in.

    I like that last one the best. It's an interesting depth of field! Squirrels are fun to watch. I can never seem to get them on camera, though. Good job! I'm jealous. :)
