Forest dweller

One of the parks close to home where I sometimes go for walks is home to a fair number of red squirrels (Tamiasciurus hudsonicus). They are superbly adapted to life in the coniferous forest – they eat seeds and cones, they are fast and agile, and they can jump great distances, even able to run along the undersides of branches. They’re a little shy, but if I stand quietly for a while and throw them a few peanuts, they’ll eventually make an appearance long enough for me to capture a few images.
