Captured after this squirrel had his head buried in snow momentarily while digging for seeds. Amazing how these critters can remember where I sprinkled bird seed on the snow and then the seed gets buried with the next round of snow fall.

Photo captured March 1, 2014.

Fabulous close up. A great portrait! I have had fun watching them eat the seed this winter! I agree, you wonder how they find their buried acorns.
