Red Squirrel with His Prize A red squirrel perches on a tree branch eyeing me suspiciously as I get close for a photo. He is probably thinking that I am an intruder trying to steal his pine nut that he has clearly devoured, when all I really want are his great poses! Captured 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
