If you have an itch, scratch it!

Fox Squirrel (Sciurus niger)

Location: Boulder, Colorado, USA

It looked as though this Fox Squirrel (Sciurus niger) was going to pose for me, but he must have felt an itch at exactly the moment I pressed the camera's shutter release.  I caught him just as he was beginning to scratch himself with his left forepaw. Well, you know what they say: "If you have an itch, scratch it!"

This Fox Squirrel is the same individual as in yesterday's photo.

These guys are so entertaining are't they? It's called being at the right place at the right time.

Yes. Becky -- entertaining is the right word for these squirrels.
