Photohunt: Furry

I have a lot of furry squirrels that nest and live in my oak trees. The furry tail above belongs to a furry squirrel.
The squirrel above is trying to hide in the tree but its furry tail makes it harder to blend in. The squirrel below was content to allow me to photograph a full body shot for the furry photohunt theme.

I love the squirrels and feed "ours" in the winter.
I wish you a great weekend.

Hi Carver, those are some very nice photos of our furry squirrel friends. My cats love to sit in the kitchen window and watch the squirrels in my bird feeder.

happy weekend!

Photo Cache said...

Hah, I think the squirrels I have been feeding in my backyard are related to yours.

I did animal today too.

Happy weekend.

You were lucky to be able to take a photo shot of one in full. They are just too fast for my camera. :P

I love squirrels with their furry tails. I know they are a bit of a pest and get more numerous in our part of the world but I find them cheerful to watch darting about the trees.

Have a great weekend Carver.

Blur Mommy said...

Beautiful! I love to watch them but it's always hard to take a photo of them.

Pat said...

Beautiful shots of the little guys!

Happy Weekend.

An accommodating squirrel! They do have lovely tails.

Beautiful! We don't have squirrels here in the Philippines (except maybe in zoos we haven't been to) and I admit, we haven't seen a real live one except in pictures.

Rach said...

Colin Campbell said...

Not so many squirrels in this part of the world. We had so many when I lived in the Washington DC area.

YTSL said...

The squirrels I've seen have been disinclined to stay still for long so congratulations on managing to take photos of these hyper as well as furry creatures!

ancient one said...

Your furry friends are not welcome at our house. Husband has deleted quite a few. Your photos are simply beautiful.

Napaboaniya said...

This squirrel seem to be a regular visitor at your place :P
Have a good weekend!! :)

Lovely furry shots :)

Aileni said...

What I said to Katney - tails don't come furrier than that.

PastorMac's Ann said...

These are terrific! Love the first one of just his tail. Great shots for our furry theme.

Vita Stunder said...

Beautiful pictures! I really love the first pic with the tail of the squirrel :)

I'm all new for PhotoHunt. Have a look of my version of Furry! :)

I wish you a great weekend! :)

Sabine said...

this is lovely... Funny, it just occurred to me that there are no squirrels in the Maltese islands... I wonder why. Strange!
Have a happy weekend Carver!

Patricia said...

Perfect! You KNOW how much my camera loves squirrels! =)

Have a warm and cozy weekend, Carver!

Heart of Rachel said...

Squirrels are fascinating. They always seem to be busy with something. Great shots!

Barbara H. said...

That's a good choice, Our neighborhood is full of them but I don't think I could get a good picture -- they move too often and too quickly!

Vita Stunder said...

Thanks a lot for your comment of my first picture on PhotoHunt! :)
It warms my heart!

Now I'm looking forward to shot Bridge(s) :)
Have you been playing PhotoHunt for a long time?

Great pictures!

Dragonstar said...

Lovely! Must be the furriest tail in the business.
The last shot is great, contrasting the furry squirrel with the wood of the fence.

A. said...

When I scrolled down and for a moment saw only the first picture, I thought it was a caterpillar. I was very relieved to see the rest of the lovely shots!

Mrs Mecomber said...

Wow! Furry tails!

I hope you get a chance to visit!

I`ve just learned to write the word squirrel (did I get it right??). It`s a bit hard, so practice is good, hehe.

Great squirrel pictures ;)

Biker Betty said...

I love watching the squirrels in our backyard every day. You have some great photos. I actually thought of using squirrel photos, but came up with something else. Have a great weekend.

girasoli said...

Very cool squirrel photos! Great take on the theme this week.

Marites said...

cute furry tail there:) I imagine he's trying to hide but can't with that fully furry tail at his back. I also like the 3rd pic with the squirrel precariously standing.

jams o donnell said...

Gorgeous shots Carver. Beautiful!

Michele said...

Awesome shots... his tail is quite furry, hey? Your camera did well at really picking up the furriness! Nice.

juliana said...

Squirrels are hated around my house ... drive my dogs nuts! But they are kind of cute.
