One of my Most Favourite Subjects
The American Red Squirrel (Tamiasciurus hudsonicus) has been & shall always be one of my most favourite little critters to photograph. These little darlings of the woods do the most darnedest of things. Sometimes they will give you the perfect pose & other days just show you their tuchus & flop their beautiful tails around. These marvellous little scamps will run circles around you if they are interested to see what you got. These photographs were all taken at Shirleys Bay, Ottawa, Ontario, Canada, part of Ottawa's Greenbelt around the city. The video at the end of this blog was taken of a wee baby who has yet to develop all his fur while he munches on a cherry tomato ... Ohm nom nom ... Cherry tomato !
