Photographer's Note

This photo was taken at Chinguacousy Park, in Brampton. This thirsty little critter did everything possible to finally get it's drink!

This type of squirrel is actually called a Grey Squirrel. The scientific name for the Eastern Grey Squirrel is Sciurus Caroliniensis, but don't ask me how to pronounce that.

The Grey Squirrel actually comes in a variety of colors -- black, red and the predominant gray. Albinos are also relatively common. They are active year-round and cannot live in a treeless environment. They feed on a great variety of things, such as nuts, seeds, fungi, fruits, and the cambium layer of tree bark.

**Interesting Fact:
Gray squirrels can swim up to two miles in calm water; they swim with their heads and rumps out of the water, and their tails held high in the air. Most squirrels spend their entire lives within a single acre of land.

**Post Pro - Cropped the left side, Dodge tool to lighten the squirrel's fur, and USM.
