Fox squirrels are common here. They're large, in charge, and hate intruders in their zones. If I'm out set up waiting for wildlife, I always keep my ears open to these guys. They're like an alarm for wildlife approaching the area. Which ever direction I hear one barking, I'll usually swing the camera that way and keep my eyes peeled. This guy on the other hand was quiet, curious, and polite. Therefore he didn't alarm wildlife of my approach...

super close up Drew. Nice of it to be so polite...lol. Love the way it's folded its front paws in from the cold

What a beautifully colored squirrel- handsome and polite, I'd say. ;) Lovely picture of the little rascal -like the tucked in front paws.

This one does look prepared for winter with those furry mitten forepaws. A pretty colour and nice alert expression.

Drew, nice detail and cute pose. And a very nice specimen of the Fox Squirrel. I agree, the tucked in paws are a bonus.
