Hello Luis,
A great shot of this black squirrel in its natural habitat.
Wonderful eye contact with a tad bit of catchlight visible. I like all the greenery surrounding the subject which enhances it coal black fur.
We have many black squirrels here in Ohio which are actually a "melanistic" subgroup of both our eastern gray squirrel and fox squirrel.
