They're some kind of cute! I love watching them.

Love both the photos but I think my favorite is the 2nd one. Squirrels are so cute.

We have a red squirrel that antagonizes Kira every time we step out the door. Seriously. I swear the thing watches for us to come out and then it follows us from tree branch to tree branch, scolding us for daring to enter the outdoors. One of these days, it is going to miss a branch and I am going to let Kira loose. :)

Two excellent photos of a cute little squirrel!

Kerri,
More excellent shots of the squirrel, and also the dragon fly and your sky watch post. I enjoyed them very much!

In reference to the extender that I told you about that I used with the Sigma, I believe I said it was a Tamron in my e-mail, but I saw it yesterday and it is in fact a Kenko which is made by Tokina.

Tree rats can be cute at times, except when they are trying to nest in your attic!

Sharon said...

Wonderful! He did seem to sit and pose perfectly for you!

Lilli & Nevada said...

Well i think they do too. I wish i could have squirrels around here as i think they are so entertaining great photos

Misty Dawn said...

Those are spectacular shots, my friend! That critter was definitely posing to have its photo taken. In the second shot it looks as if it is asking "Did you get my good side?" WONDERFUL photos! Thank you so much for playing CC this week.

Blue said...

More 'rats with tails' - sorry!
Yours are lovely photo's of these cheeky critters.

Juli said...

Cute pic and lol at whoever called them tree rats. My dog Otis goes nuts over squirrels. He is here if you want to check it out for my critter of the week.

Unbelievably cute. I've said it before, i miss squirrels so much since we moved to this island. So glad you chose this pic today.

Tammy said...

Nice of him to pose for you. Nice shots.

Mary said...

I find them amusing, too, Kerri. They have tons of body language going on all the time and when I approach them sitting atop my bird feeders, I love seeing their look of DREAD. LOL!

Katney said...

Isn't it nice when they stop andpose for you? I have a squirrel today, too.

very cute. and great colors

Alyssa said...

Squirrels seem to be naturals in front of the camera. I think because they sit still for long periods of time. You shots are very pretty and look like they should be on a calandar.

Hi Kerri
Two great shots here.. as I am writing this Hazel is sat on the back of another chair watching me type, she is flicking her tail to tell me she wants feeding.. I am hoping she as young ones this year and maybe brings them by to visit..

Stacey said...

I could watch squirrels every single day--they're soooo energetic and funny!

Joy said...

Wow cute pictures. You have such clear, colorful photos. You must have a great camera.

Andrée said...

Oh Kerri, these are beautiful. Photographing squirrels is so so satisfying, no matter what the species. Great work.
