Mother Love Part 1

Mother Love Part 1

I spotted this mother squirrel with an older baby in my backyard pecan tree and went to get my camera. She was grooming her baby from head to toe and apparently removing fleas and other parasites. Every now and then she would stop and chew whatever it was that she had removed. Must have felt good because the baby held perfectly still.
Fox Squirrel (Sciurus niger)
