Thanks for looking.
omg! lol well if its not an albino what is it then?? some kind of polar squirrel?
Wow, I have never seen one before!
Awesome! Where the heck are they growing white squirrels?
I belive that as these are not albino (the eyes are wrong, and the skin looks darker - not the washout pink) then they would be artic squirrels With white coats to hide in the snow.
Nice series of shots with a much more uncommon subject - must have been tricky catching them in the shots - they are fast devils! Must say I like the first best - a good use of composition space
Wrong place for blending in! is that a black patch on the head of the first?
In a white room with black curtains, at the station..
Silver squirrels run down moon beams, in your dark eyes..
Hey it put a killer song in my head, and now yours too!
Long time no abstract conversation kundi

Thanks Hobbes, ATX, Dmitri, Overread, matt-l, LsD3 and julz for your comments.
The white squirrels are residents of Brevard, NC. They just scamper about like the grey squirrles that are also there. I really don't know how, why or when they became part of the town. They do have a black-to-grey streak on their heads/neck. I was walking around in local residential areas to find them and only carried a kit lens with me rather than the 70-200mm f/2.8. I thought it best to keep a low profile.
I was thinking of [ame="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pz4dVof3mTc"]Little Acrorns [/ame]by The White Stripes afterwards.
Sorry, been in a mood lately. I'll snap out of it soon. This past week has gone a long way to remedy that.
nice shots, i like how the squirrel stands out so much in the first and third shot, some weird squirrels, i wish the lived around were i live, grey squirrels are getting too bland
I was thinking maybe a leucistic trait? Im most likely wrong if theyre common. Awesome pics though.
