When I read the prompt for the Friendly Friday Photo Challenge: Funny Furry Friends I had a few options.
There’s no shortage of furry friends within yards of where I sit writing this with Squirrels, Chipmunks and even Raccoons visiting the yard in Ontario, Canada on a regular basis.
However, I haven’t spent months digitising my slide archives not to make use of the digital versions. So here’s a small selection of furry friends from Shropshire, England and Saskatchewan, Canada.
A European Rabbit photographed on the Brown Moss Nature Reserve near Whitchurch, Shropshire, England.
A Richardson’s Ground Squirrel looking for something to eat in the spring having just emerged from hibernation. Photographed near Punnichy, Saskatchewan, Canada.
This Striped Skunk was photographed at Middle Quill Lake, Saskatchewan, Canada in the spring. I was looking for migrant birds when it wandered out of the vegetation along the shoreline.
This is a Thirteen-lined Ground Squirrel. Photographed in the spring near Punnichy, Saskatchewan, Canada. I have never worked out which lines on the ground squirrels body you are supposed to count to get 13.
