Fox Squirrel

Sciurus niger


Found in someone's front yard on Kipling Street in Houston, TX. Eating a pecan and posing like an '80s action movie hero. Visible from the house's front window.


Anywhere with enough trees, it seems. This one was found in the Montrose neighborhood of Houston.


I got really lucky with this picture!! Watched it (him? her?) for a few minutes to see if s/he'd strike a great pose to share.
