In this picture the tail of the squirrel is almost as long as the whole animal. They use it as an extra support to balance themselves throughout the tree canopy. I am always surprised how long it is, a bit the same like the red fox Especially in winter it’s remarkable.
This little rascal was nibbling from the peanuts that were scattered in the garden. He was always on the lookout for danger but incredibly cute to observe and watch.
Last Monday we hiked in Brasschaat, near Antwerp. I was positively surprised that this village contains so much different, beautiful nature areas.
