Black and Black

The black squirrels – which I’ve only ever seen here in Canada or in the Rocky Mountain area of the United States – are getting fat on the black walnuts along the river.  I was walking along and heard a clatter on the leaves.  It was the little bits of walnut skin – dark green and hard – hitting the leaves below the squirrel.  This one was kind enough to keep eating while I took a picture.
