_MG_7215 Squirrel at Sundown

The sun was halfway behind the mountain when I saw this squirrel out on the deck. Grabbed the camera, which I keep on the kitchen counter (to be ready for occasions like this) and raised the ISO and started shooting - noticed I had the aperture at f/9 and that wasn't going to do, so I opened it up all the way and hoped for the best. This is handheld. Dirty window + image stabilization resulted in an image that wasn't half bad. It appears this is the same squirrel that's in the next image.

Amazing! Yep, looks to be the same squirrel. How how naming it "Clover" for the ear shape?
