Melanistic Fox Squirrel
Squirrel decided he didn't want me to take his picture and ran up a nearby tree. I got lucky and snapped the photo just as he started.
Squirrel leaped off the roof onto the balcony with a nut. It ran away from me pretty quickly and quite determined to take the nut to a safe space.
Squirrel in my apple tree. I was late with my observation- I saw the squirrel about 1:40 pm

Today was the day of butterflies! The rain held off for most of the day, so we took advantage of it. :) And with the power of iNaturalist, I observed lots of things besides the target taxa. :)
Bentsen Rio Grande Valley State Park was mighty neat.
