CAMERA CRITTERS

Throughout this blog you may have noticed that I have a fascination and liking for squirrels.  That fascination doesn't stop when I travel.  While roaming around Niagara Falls Botanical Garden I spotted this little fellow first, very similar to the ones I feed peanuts to in our garden....


but then I saw this little fellow.  He is my first black squirrel as I have never seen them this color before.


He put up with me for a while as I took these photos....


but then decided he had had enough....


and disappeared....


quickly.....


but I sure did enjoy meeting him.

Squirrels are interesting to watch, and they are friendly once they gain some confidence level in you.
Nice pictures.

I always smile when bloggers say they've never seen a black squirrel before. Our yard has 3 or 4 at one time eating bird seed or chasing each other. There is a rare grey one at time.

Is that a black squirrel? They are beautiful and tough to capture in a photo. Nicely done.

He's a cutie. We don't have squirrels in that colour here at all.

We have those black squirrels in some parts of Illinois, but they're rarely seen. You captured him beautifully.
