    There seems to be regional variation in squirrel fur colours. In the Montreal area the squirrels are brown, but in the Ottawa-Gatineau area most seem to be black. We’ve also noticed black squirrels in New Brunswick and Nova Scotia. I tried to get a ‘proper’ shot for this august assemblage of squirrel aficionados but here’s my best so far. I’m on a quest!!

    I forget what I did in the processing of this black and white to make it so dramatic....it was YEARS ago, but if I remember correctly I was really into adjusting individual color sliders to the extreme back then.....judging from the sky, I tweaked the blue channel the hardest.

    Bastard things, the lot of 'em. Had one in my loft once. Drove us mad. Destroyed insulation and cables too. Finally drove it out with trays of Jeyes Fluid scattered all around. Rats with good PR, that's all they are!

    OK. This is it for black squirrels. Now I’m on the lookout for striped or calico squirrels.

    I never knew squirrels hissed and growled at each other until a group of them started begging from me for peanuts and corn at a woodland cabin we were renting. Brazen little things, they are.
