Unusual for a Grey Squirrel............................................................... it's white!

"Halloween ghost squirrel?"... and yes I really did see this today.

We went out for a drive this afternoon and had a short walk... my first for nearly seven weeks.
It was only for a few hundred yards in my local woods but a bit of fresh air and a change of scenery for me.


As we headed home this little squirrel scampered across the road in front of us... it was almost totally white.
 I've never seen one like this before but managed to capture this record shot.
It really stood out from the greys and I hope to go back and capture better images... and a video clip if I can.

A very coincidental Halloween sighting Andrew.

Around Enterprise, KS there is actually a race of white squirrels - not just an odd leucistic individual but an entire population. I remember being quite amazed when I saw them.....way back in the days when you had to put a roll of film in a camera!
Best wishes for a speedier and speedier recovery Andrew.

Not a trick, but a treat...to see! Well spotted and snapped Andrew.
Glad to see that you're managing to get out and about again. I hope you can get back there soon for some more images...[;o)
