Black Squirrel in a Gray Tree

Boring picture- boring title! What can I say?!
Wow! Haven't seen a black one before...

Dear wee squirrel -- I wish i could have one as a pet!

Title, maybe, but picture definitely not!

Not at all boring. The only black squirrels I’ve ever seen were in Switzerland. Great shot.

Title fits (no apologies needed) and this is a wonderful capture of a squirrel variety that I've never seen.

Very neat on the grey tree, and nice textured background!

We had black squirrels in NH. They were gigantic. He's really cute!

The picture is not boring at all.......the title could use a little work! ;~} Our squirrels are only gray so this is a really cool photo! I like the composition and the shallow DOF Oh yeah FAV

Thank you so much- one and all- for your views, gracious comments and favs!

According to Jane, my friend the science teacher, black squirrels are merely mutations of the gray ones. Right now I have two of them who play in my backyard but unlike their gray counterparts I never see them trying to raid the bird feeder. Interesting!

@pyrrhula Thank you Ferry- most of the time they are gray.
May 15th, 2020  
I just read your tag! LOL!

Unusual coloring for the squirrel, but a great capture.

@grammyn That's going to be happening throughout the Spring when the weather goes back and forth from sun to rain. Glad it made you smile!

@randystreat Thank you Kathy!

You have a black squirrel! I've only seen one in Michigan when I was a student there decades ago. I like his contrast to the whiteness of the tree.

@jyokota Thank you Junko! I never saw them when I lived in New Jersey but have had several over the years we've lived here in Pennsylvania.

@olivetreeann photographing squirrels is so much fun . . .
