This Douglas squirrel (Tamiasciurus douglasii) is a pine squirrel found in the Pacific coastal states and provinces of North America.  I photographed him on the western side of Mt. Ranier in the State of Washington where he was having lunch in a grove of tall pine tree.  That day there was a raging forest fire about a 100 miles to the west and the smoke and ashed were carried by the wind over the national park.


Late in the afternoon the sun shone through small openings in clouds of smoke and speckled the forest floor with a beautiful orange light.  It accentuated the natural pale orange color on the chest and belly of the squirrel.
