Taking a Sun Bath

Outside my window today, a honey bear squirrel, one with a tawny belly and a black exterior.

Since Baby Squirrel Oscar had these markings, I can only surmise that this might be a relative: same neighbourhood, same trees, same colouration.

Despite frigid temps, with the sun out, the squirrels also come out. They sit huddled in the crooks of branches with their tails arching over their bodies and they bask in the warming rays.
