Red squirrel

It's a rubbish picture but I was so glad to get even this shot of these rare animals that I kept it. Rosie spotted the squirrel (we don't get red ones in the Midlands) while we were walking in the Lake District, and she was mesmerised!
Fascinating... We have a plethora of gray squirrels in Georgia, US... when we were visiting Vancouver we saw black squirrels in Stanley Park... they were very interesting. Then when camping at the North rim of the Grand Canyon we saw Kaibab squirrels... they are unique to the Kaibab Plateau an area of about 20 X 40 miles... they have white tails. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kaibab_squirrel

I agree Lesley... a real rarity, so I understand why you were so thrilled to photograph it!

@pattyblue @anniesue @carole_sandford @miss_molly Thanks all. I was chuffed.

@kvphoto What a beauty the Kaibab is! How lucky for you to see them in the wild.
