Red Squirrel Portrait I don't usually take portrait oriented photos, but for this squirrel, it seemed appropriate with how it was oriented on the trunk of this ponderosa pine. Captured on a beautiful day in north Idaho's Selkirk Mountains.

The American red squirrel is one of three species of tree squirrel currently classified in the genus ''Tamiasciurus'' and known as pine squirrels . American red squirrels are also referred to as pine squirrels, North American red squirrels, and chickarees. It is a medium sized diurnal mammal that defends a year-round exclusive territory. The diet of these tree squirrels is specialized on the seeds of conifer cones. As such, they are widely distributed across North America wherever conifers are common,.. more
