Now THAT is a Squirrel of a Different Color!
For some reason, Cheshire Connecticut is home to a number of black squirrels. No, they are not as common as our standard grey squirrels, but I know about four certain spots around town that I can watch to see the black ones pretty regularly. However, I had never seen one up close and personal until a few days ago in my own yard! I was working away at the computer when I happened to look up and see a squirrel much darker than normal--of course I grabbed the camera and took way too many shots as I tried to "capture" this handsome fellow . . .
