American Grey squirrel considered a pest In the UK because of a pox they carry that kills our native reds...A large Oak tree has shed it's acorns opposite my home and this is the first time I have seen these In our area...I feel he's looking at me and saying.."Yeah watcha gonna do about It"....R.

He must be nuts if he thinks you are going to do nothing Richie. I wonder how he got there? Good shot although I think you wish you had a gun instead of a camera.

People are like cameras--sometimes they lose focus.

Good shot of the American Grey Ritchie - here in the U.S., I, along with others, consider them to be a nuisance - they are very destructive as they like to chew insulation off wiring but most importantly, they get into attics to make nests for the next generation!!!

I have more of a live and let live attitude than some regarding squirrels - this is good shot but he does seem to be taunting you!

A rare sight it is - probably came over as stowaway on a ship. Hope they don't multiply because they will attack and kill our smaller red squirrels.

Richie, like Tick, I'm curious how this squirrel got into your area.
Usually people are to blame for this, whether consciously or not.
If not caught in time, the native red squirrels are indeed at risk. I should not think about it. While this is a nice photograph, I prefer the native red squirrels.
