Black Squirrel (Bandit Button Nose)
This little guy has a unique face for a squirrel, and I think he is as "cute as a button".

Super photos! That squirrel is very unusual. What a sweet face. :)

Muffie said...

The squirrel looks like a cartoon with that little button nose! (I still don't like them, though.) Your photos are amazing how you can capture those little birds in perfect stillness. The plumage, also, is beautiful.

Awesome photos Karen, love the vibrant red on the housefinch.

The fireplace gif I used was found on line by the way. I usually try to label them and need to go back and do that.

Judith @ Lavender Cottage said...

Nice critters shared. You really captured the red of a male house finch.

beautiful. Your images really show off the colors in each photo. :)

aspiritofsimplicity said...

splendid image of the male house finch and the black button nose squirrel is a rather sweet and mischievous looking little fellow. I shouldn't mind sharing my seed with him as long as he didn't bring hoards of his friends with him.

JOY @ http://joysjotsshots.blogspot.com/ said...

Great collection of bird pics. Never thought about just appreciating the pattern of their wings. Also, I don't recall ever seeing a black squirrel. Thanks for sharing. enJOYed the collection very much. Thanks for joining my blog.

EG CameraGirl said...

Great shots of the back sides of these finches! ;))

Debbie said...

Sallie (FullTime-Life) said...

The pictures are so perfect... every feather shows up beautifully (or I guess every piece of fur in the last)....I love these all.
