I’ve got a new neighbor… a little albino squirrel has taken up residence in the hollow of the tree outside my bedroom window!
I noticed him during our last snowfall a few days ago. Because it was snowing so hard outside I thought he was a regular squirrel covered with snow at first, but then I realized he was albino! I’ve been having a wonderful time watching him scamper about the tree. He’s a nervous little thing though, always on the move, so getting any decent photographs of him has been a bit of a challenge.
But here is one I managed to capture one evening as he paused briefly on one of the branches…
I’m going to name him Frosty. ♥ Frosty the snow squirrel. 😀
This shot has a bunch of messy of branches in the way (makes for pretty good camouflage), but it shows his little pink eye looking at me…
His color is more of a pale grey than white, especially in the lighting of these photos, but I would still consider him albino.
Here is one I caught of him peeking out of the hollow at me.
He’s so cute with his little paw up to his chest.
I snapped this one while he was washing up a bit, but he looks like he’s covering his face, so just for fun I captioned it and I think I’m going to send it to my friend who hates winter..
She follows my blog, so she may see this before I send it to her. If so… this one is for you Sharon! Hang in there my friend! 😀
Personally, I’m still enjoying winter for the time being, but come see me around the end of February and I’m sure I’ll be quite weary of it with a serious case of spring fever by then. 😉
I’m also still taking lots of pictures of the frost on my windows, I’m sure I’ll be sharing more of those with you in the near future. It’s just so very lovely, and one must always be on the lookout for the beauty to be found each day…
Peace & Love…
