Eastern Grey Squirrel (Sciurus carolinensis)
Beacon Hill Park, Victoria, British Columbia, Canada
All squirrels found in Beacon Hill Park are Eastern grey squirrels and are an introduced species. Colour variations of the so-called “grey” squirrel include brown, red, black and occasionally, white. This little squirrel sat quiently and still for an unsually long period of time an allowed me to take quite a few photographs. Just when I started to think he was not well off he went, darting here and there at pace you would expect to see.
