Hi Pierre,
very nice, this Arctic ground squirrel. I looked up "Tuktoyaktuk", that is far out indeed. Thanks for presenting such an "outlier" of the Earth!
Best regards

This guy is so cute, Pierre, I wonder that you made such a close and sharp shot, I guess they must be very shy?!?
Lovely moment, thanks, you made me smile

Hello Pierre,
a cure squirrel and the monotone of greyish brown make it so pretty. The action of curiousity is well documented.


Hallo Pierre
This is a beautiful little animal with adorable features and it is one of those animals that everybody will ooh and aah about especially the females. I personally like the olive shaped eyes and the almost triangular shaped ears and cannot pass without mentioning the lovely fur. Thanks for sharing. Best regards.

bonjour Pierre
merci beaucoup pour nous montrer cette adorable créature que je ne connaissais pas
la luminosité est superbe, l'écureuil est bien détaillé et bien positionné dans l'image,
le décor naturel est très interressant
passe une bonne nuit

Taken at 12:30(MST)!!!
These fellows have STRONG AND SHARP CLAWS.
A very well presented image.
Mario with regards from Calgary Alberta.
