The Lighter Side

Way to get rid of all that gray hair.

Four years ago, I shared some really good photos I got of a squirrel at the park who was rocking a very blonde fur-do.  It was the first and only time I’d ever seen a squirrel THAT lightly colored all over their body, and not just in the tail.  During one of my visits the the park last month, I finally found another squirrel whose fur was definitely on the blondish side of the scale.  Not quite as blonde as the squirrel from 2019, but light enough for me to notice how different he looked from about 100 feet away…

And unfortunately, that’s about as close as I was able to get to him… which resulted in me not getting any really good shots of him like I was able to of that other squirrel.

Probably the best pic I got of him.

He kept a very safe distance distance from me, and eventually got out of my range entirely…

Hey! Come back! I can make you a star!

And while I always refer to squirrels with male pronouns out of laziness, I can confirm that this week’s Saturday Squirrel blondie is indeed not a bimbo, but a mimbo…

The drapes match the…. er….. tassels.

Have a great weekend everyone!

    Do you suppose there was a red squirrel hidden in the woodshed of that family tree…?

    What a cute squirrel :3

    • Wish I could’ve got a better look at him, but definitely one that stood out from the crowd. Which for prey animals like squirrels isn’t necessarily a good thing…

    We had a family of black squirrels in Evanston when we lived there. I would see them running down the sidewalk with an apple from my apple tree in their mouths.

    He’s rockin’ that look.

  7. Blonde squirrels……never seen one around here but we have the occasional black squirrel. We have equal opportunity bird feeders that are visited by the squirrels as much or more than the birds visit.
