What Does the Fox (Squirrel) Say?

I love, love, love fox squirrels. I guess it is partly that they always take me by surprise. And the variety of their colors is interesting. Unlike gray squirrels that all look pretty much alike, these larger cousins come in several colors and combine them for lots of different effects. Like most squirrels, they are fast and rarely stay put for long. This one crossed in front of our truck recently and then, uncharacteristically, accommodated my picture-taking by posing for about a minute.

Look at that beautiful winter coat! No faux fur here!
