Guest Photographer Terri Jo Adams spotted something I had no clue lived here in Stayton — an albino squirrel at Pioneer/Neitling Park. Her description:
Ok, now I KNOW the picture’s grainy and blurry, but it’s the best I could do at the time with my puny point-and-shoot camera. If anybody else who has access to BETTER photographic equipment than I, I’d LOVE to have a better photo of this amazing critter. Yes, it’s really an albino squirrel – and I spotted it today at Pioneer Park in Stayton. John Brandt lives nearby, he may have more opportunities to spot the lil guy than others might. Seeing this made my jaw drop – I’ve never seen an albino squirrel before … ain’t life grand? !!!
Here’s a shot of it from further away:
I am going to have to stalk the part to see if I can get a shot of it myself. Thanks, Terri Jo!
