Just Looking Around: Miss Personality Northern Maine
This week's Just Looking Around photographer is Vonda Lavway of Easton.
Lavway, a second grade teacher at Easton Elementary School, photographs the beauty of the landscape in Aroostook County, Maine, often with close-ups of fine northern Maine residents like this one.
This chipper sciurid has been dubbed "Miss Personality."
Miss P is not particularly bothered by human interest, so long as it's not too close and doesn't interfere with dinner.
Squirrels cannot digest cellulose, so they must rely on foods rich in protein, carbohydrates, and fats. Something to keep in mind when deciding if you want them near bird feeders.
American red squirrels are also known as pine squirrels, boomers, and chickarees.
American red squirrels are primarily granivores, but incorporate other food items into their diets opportunistically.
Each week, we bring you Maine and New Brunswick photographers' explorations of the natural world from the Just Looking Around Facebook group.
