Black Squirrel

This squirrel decided I was not enough of a threat to disturb his breakfast.

Aw, he's adorable. He must have known you were a friend of squirrels.

I'm glad he let you take his picture. We don't have black squirrels around here.

Good pic--in the Alleghenies, the black phase squirrels were relatively rare (as were "red ruff" ruffed grouse vs. the gray ones). Read a bit on the Wikipedia site--theory is that black squirrels were dominant in pre-Colonial times, but clearcutting the great hardwood forests shifted the selection pressure.
