Squirrel Staring from Ashe Juniper 6077

On the morning of June 23, as I was proofing the post you saw last time, I heard a thud on the roof and then watched while the white squirrel and a regularly colored one jumped into the Ashe juniper tree outside my window and chased madly about, whether playing or fighting I couldn’t tell. At one point, locked together, they fell off a branch of the tree and disappeared from my sight, but soon afterward I saw each one back up high again, though moving separately, so the fall apparently didn’t hurt them. Some minutes later the regularly colored squirrel came back for a bout of staring at me, as you see. Unfortunately the white one didn’t, but because it hangs out around here maybe I’ll get more chances to photograph it.
