White Squirrel Redux

While out walking with my wife this sunny afternoon, we came across a denizen of the neighborhood that I have previously blogged about. This white squirrel can be found within a few hundred feet of the same spot on any given day, and over the past year the squirrel seems to be increasingly comfortable around humans.

I suspect that the unusual appearance of this particular squirrel has endeared the rodent to nearby humans, and that people have been feeding the squirrel by hand. We were able to get with six feet or so of the squirrel, and if we had a couple of peanuts, the creature no doubt would have sauntered right up to see us.
