Friendly Friday: Funny Furry Friends

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.

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.

Lovely. Looking at your photos I immediately thought of Watership Down. Is Shropshire anywhere near Hampshire? Not that it matters 🙂

Thanks Sandy. In England not many people would say Shropshire is near Hampshire but to some Canadians they would be quite close. I’d guess 200 to 250 kilometers.

David is right in England we would definitely not say they are close! I am though very close it is only a few miles down the road from me. The downs stretch across the south of England, they are quite lovely as is David’s gorgeous rabbit. Definitely has a look of Watership Down about it 🙂
