Rorrel Has An Itch

Rorrel had a severe bout of itch some time back. Thankfully it did not last long. But it was fun watching it struggle to scratch all parts of its body. The squirrels roll in the dust; probably it is their way of getting rid of mites and fleas in their fur. Or another reason could be it was itching from molting. Squirrels get itchy and scratch their fur our out when they molt.

I was lucky to get some shots of Rorrel in action. Hope you will enjoy seeing them.

All set to itch.

That leg was moving at >100mph.

Now my left leg

Aaah… itchy right there!

    My cousin came to New Jersey, USA from Germany a couple of years ago and took thousands of pictures of squirrels. He said they didn't have them where he lived.
