Squirrel, up close

This is a close view of the squirrel that I showed yesterday. The reason I think this is a variegated squirrel rather than a red squirrel is that his reddish color is on his belly, and red squirrels most widely have red tails and backs, which is the opposite of his coloration.

This squirrel was in a small tree about two blocks from our Langosta condo when we were walking back from lunch at the nearby Cala Luna Resort.

On our Viva la Voyage travel photo site this week we are showing photos from a recent visit of mine to the Hotel Del Coronado in Coronado, California. Come take a look at the Victorian charm and ideal beach weather.

Oh, he looks like a character from one of those rodent populated novels so popular with a certain type of young male reader.

If he had a "talk bubble", He might be saying "What are you looking at?"
