Red Squirrel

By Rev2
A Scottish Red Squirrel, Sciurus vulgaris. The second part of its scientific name means 'common'. One of my previous uploads, the European Starling shares this specific epithet. Both are sadly declining in numbers.

Many thanks once again for all the c & c's and especially Malcolm, Harriet, Lin and Uma for their generous awards. The second shot is the little fellow blowing you all a kiss.

Wonderful pair of images of this lovely Red. (I think the burp was perhaps from Fosters XXX, not Red Bull Wink
Top work here!
