Red Squirrel

Another creature that crossed my path during Sunday's stroll in the Carleton College arboretum was this Red Squirrel.  I have written twice previously on this species—you may recall that Red Squirrels do not hibernate, though they may be inactive during ugly weather. This squirrel watched me fidget with my camera, only fleeing just before I remembered to try to use my flash attachment. The squirrel held on to a Black Walnut fruit that it had probably cached in the fall.
