#45 – Foxy

Photo taken: December 22, 2013

I couldn’t even begin to tell you how many different squirrels I’ve taken pictures of since I first got into photographing them about six years ago, but I can tell you that there have only been two squirrels who have made such an impression on me that they got names.  One was Wilson the park squirrel, whose nest building enterprise I documented a couple years ago in a Saturday Squirrel miniseries.  The first one, though, was a very peculiar young squirrel who showed up in my neighborhood in late 2013 that couldn’t possibly have been mistaken for any of the other nearly identical greys that scamper around.  The bright orange tail he sported was as unmistakable as it was absolutely gorgeous.  I named him Foxy, and got quite a few pictures of him that December and January until he either disappeared or, more likely, the grey fur on his tail actually grew in.  I chose this photo of Foxy for the countdown because I think it shows off his fiery red tail the best.  This little cutie was definitely rocking some awesome autumn colors…

  1. Amazing color – I see a bit of reddish fur on his “arms” as well……quite the fashion plate!!


    • Definitely the most colorful squirrel I’ve ever seen running around here. Foxy almost looks like a hybrid between a red and a grey squirrel, though I don’t believe that’s possible…

  2. A squirrel who turns his fur for the season? How marvelous!!

    Foxy looks like he could be the lead character in a Saturday morning kids cartoon show… if such things still existed.

    I bet all the blood is rushing to his little squirrel head. Get horizontal, dude!

  5. Typical millennial…with the hair dye. 😇
