I photographed these Red Squirrels while visiting the Blue Ridge Mountains. They're noticeably smaller than their common Gray Squirrel cousins and are easily recognized by their reddish coloration. Despite their small size, Red Squirrels are not afraid to let you know when they're perturbed. They chatter and bark quite noisily. Eurasian Red Squirrels are similar in color, but have large ear tufts.
