Dwellings
I hope you are having a great weekend!

While in Florida
my mother-in-law was telling us stories about the bears that she sees in her yard and she also told us about the
white squi rrel.


Though in the wee hours of the night he did hear all the dogs barking like crazy due to the bears, we never saw the bears.
BUT, we did see the
white squi rrel!


I am an animal lover
and though some think on squirrels as well, a version of a rat,
(an older woman once informed me her opinion of them)
I happen to like them
and
was thrilled to actually see one that was white!

Of course, I immediately grabbed my camera and began taking pictures like a crazy woman!
Unfortunately there were a couple of things working against me...
 I was far away,
taking pictures through a WINDOW,
and the white squi rrel was fast...




I changed my camera setting to the highest zoom option...




Isn't he something...I was so excited!





I know, I know...
It doesn't take much to thrill me and seeing a white squi rrel surely did!




Here's lookin' at YOU my sweet friend!
  

Love your sweet comments, you make my day!
Blessings,
Cindy

  7. Oh my gosh, I've never heard of a white squirrel. What fun for you to have seen one and had your camera handy. I'm sorry you didn't see the bear, but also kind of glad as I think that might be scary.

    Have a great weekend!

  11. Oh I know what you mean! It is SO cute! We have a white squirrel in the park beside us and because we live in a rather artsy area people care...ALOT lol! We ow have "White Squirrel Way" Which is a street... and the coffee shop adjacent to it has the white squirrel as their logo (Hanging over the store, then there are cups, shirts...even refrigerator magnets!) LOL and there's white squirrel postcards too, in another art store just a block away, literally pictures (of good quality) taken by local photographers!
    How's that for excitement?! LOL As for me, I'd much rather see bears ;)
    Thank you for this cute post! He's adorkable!

    Hugs,

  15. I live in Ontario, Canada and have never seen a white squirrel. I happen to like them too and feed them every day around our home. They have as much right to a good life as any of us, I think. Deb=^..^=x4

  17. Cute squirrel Cindy. I've never seen a white squirrel. There is a town in Illinois that is home to lot of them.

  18. Bears in the yard??? I don't think so! ;) The albino squirrel is so cute! Albinos of any animal are definitely rare. We had a couple of albino crows (one not completely) in our area several years ago. I probably one of the few who never saw them but then, of course, I don't have a daily commute which would allow me to do so. I need to get out more often...sigh

  21. What a little cutie pie! I love it. We have squirrels around our house and we talk to them all of the time and they chatter at us every time we drive into our drive or come out of our house. They are a lot of fun.
    Hugs, Cindy

  22. Just ran across your post on the white squirrels...I have them in my yard...and I love them...They are very difficult to get photos of ...the only time I've gotten some fairly good shots are when I drove my car close to the trees they were in...don't know why they aren't afraid of my car...Have a beautiful week!!!
