The North American red squirrel (Tamiasciurus hudsonicus) is one of two species of tree squirrel currently classified in the genus Tamiasciurus and known as pine squirrels (the other is the Douglas squirrel, T. douglasii). It is a medium sized (200–250g) diurnal mammal that defends a year-round exclusive territory. The diet of these tree squirrels is specialized on the seeds of conifer cones. As such, they are widely distributed across North America wherever conifers are common, except on the Pacific coasts where they are replaced by Douglas squirrels. Recently red squirrels have been expanding their range to include primarily hardwood areas (Goheen et al. 2003)

Bonjour Mircea,
C'est un trčs beau portrait d'un petit animal en pleine action, isolé au sommet de son bout de branche, dans une trčs belle lumičre d'hiver qui accorde parfaitement bien les teintes rousses de sa robe aux reflets beiges et jaune du sous-bois. Superbe.

Good pose of this cute squirrel, Mircea.
I wonder how he keeps his balance, he hardly seems to have any toe-hold on the stump. I guess they are very agile.
Pretty colors and good DOF.
TFS. : )
