Outdoor Wednesday Post for Susan @ A Southern Daydreamer’s Home…

I got my camera in January and I haven’t been successful at getting any shots of our squirrels until now…They live in our backyard and are a joy to watch. These white squirrels are not as large as the usual red and brown squirrels but it is so exciting to see them. There are lots of them, I have always thought of them as "families" and as far as I know, they are not albino, just white. I love seeing them raise their babies during the summer and playing together.

Nooooo, this isn’t a squirrel, this is Zoe and her attitude toward all squirrels…

  8. The only white squirrel I ever saw was a white flying squirrel at a place we camped at in Missouri -- it nearly landed on my husband! He is so cute -- and I do like squirrels even though they are really rodents -- but they are cute rodents!

  11. Wow! I have never in all of my life seen a white squirrel! I'm just amazed! I've seen gray ones and even red ones, but white ones are something I didn't even know existed! I love them! And Zoe is a hoot... my dogs used to get perturbed by them as well. :-)

    Happy OW!

    XO,

  12. I wonder where you live and have white squirrels? This is a first for me. Pets and squirrels just bug each other don't they!

  13. Awesome! Have never seen a white one, but when we lived in Maryland coal black ones were common in our neighborhood... Here in Roanoke they are the common gray/brown ugly squirrels....

  14. Oh cute! There were white squirrels a few blocks from where I grew up. They were all in the block around my elementary school. It was fun to get a glimpse of them from time to time. There were flying squirrels too. Teachers used the opportunity to discuss science and genetics.

  16. We saw a white squirrel up in Hayward, Wisconsin area; but last summer it was gone. I had never seen one before and now yours is the second white squirrel. After getting off the floor from laughter when Zoe showed up, I have to admit this post was a lot of fun! Happy Outdoor Wednesday!

    The first time I saw your face,I couldn't get you out of my mind.Yesterday,it fonally hit me.You either ARE or you LOOK LIKE an actress on tv .I haven't figured out who yet.I think it's always different roles.
    I looked at your profile.It says your gender is male.Was that an accident?I don't mean to be personal.I could care less if you're a rhino.I love what I have seen of your blog and plain to hang around a while.
    I was just airing my thoughts...Ann
