We have a lot of squirrels in our garden.
Black, grey, even one red ...
And even though we see so many, they each have their own little personalities and markings that make them unique.
His black coat is flecked with white which is really noticeable up close
but what makes him really stand out
is his tail!
his tail and those nails!!!
The first time I spotted his tail I didn't think it was a squirrel on our back deck …
