From winter to summer :-)

Red squirrel is changing its fur to summer fur in spring in Finland.


✔ The red squirrel sheds its coat twice a year, switching from a thinner summer coat to a thicker, darker winter coat with noticeably larger ear-tufts (a prominent distinguishing feature of this species) between August and November.



Many thanks to everyone for your visit, comments and faves! Much appreciated! 😊


Have a nice Friday!
