Getting squirrelly

When I head out for one of my photo hikes I never know what kind of birds I might see and photograph, if any. Some days I get lucky and there are an abundance of birds. Other days there’s little to photograph.

But there is one constant: Regardless of the season or the weather conditions, I always see squirrels, the subject of my featured gallery for January. These forest rodents are plentiful in any area with trees. They are constantly climbing, chasing, digging and eating. And I’ll stop to get a photo when I find one in a nice setting.
