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.
