Good Fences -5

 
A great fence for basking in the sun!
 
This little black squirrel is moulting.
Squirrels moult from head to tail in the spring, and from tail to head in the fall.

  6. Love your squirrel shot as always, and he is indeed having a "bad hair" day, isn't he!! The squirrels eating on my window sill look very much the same -- but losing their fur hasn't diminished their appetite!! Hope you have a lovely weekend, Karen!! Enjoy!

  21. That might explain the unexplained fur tufts in the lawn, thanks!

    I'd like to be basking in the sun too!

  24. Just chillin out while basking in the sunshine! I didn't know squirrels moulted.

  25. Nature's amazing. Now if we could only molt aging human skin the same way!

  26. Very cute shot, a relaxing spot for the squirrel to lay! Have a happy weekend!

  27. The molting process is so interesting. What a cute pose for the camera. :)

  28. Really! I had no idea squirrels molted that way. I'm not even sure I've ever noticed that they molt (I am so ignorant)...I think I just thought sometimes that they didn't look very healthy. I wonder why they do that opposite way in the two seasons.

    This guy sure does look like he's taking a sun bath!

    ReplyDelete
  29. OH my gosh he looks "tuckered" and is just so cute. I had no idea squirrels molt. I've never seen the ones here do that.

    ReplyDelete
