  1. The squirrel is so cute, He looks too adorable playing in the snow. How can one submit photos at the Conservancy’s Flickr group?

  2. Perhaps not playing ( for fun ) but, wait for it – DIGGING FOR FOOD ( FOR SURVIVAL ) – nevertheless it’s a good photo and the squirrel is very cute….,. squirrels are.
