When I was little, I used to call these squirrels "city squirrels", because animals running around seemed to be a country thing. I was quite pleased to have them in the yard. They are Grey Squirrels, although they are anything but gray! When I was a teen-ager, I used to buy bags of peanuts and feed them. They would practically come in the house when I opened the door to give them a peanut! I had to use my foot to block them :) I photographed them, they all had names and I certainly could tell them all apart. My little 126 instamatic camera soon became my 35mm Olympus SLR. A have a photo album that is at least 5 inches thick. I had a lot of fun, except when they would run into the street.
So in honor of all my buddies from 40 years ago, I decided to make a "city" squirrel.
