Albino squirrel in Great Smoky Mountain NP

Discovered this little fellow on a week long trip to Great Smoky Mountain NP while hiking close to the Ocanuluftee visitor center. I followed him into the brush where he posed for me. Obviously those white squirrels are quite rare with all kinds of myths and rumors surrounding how they wound up there. What a highlight!
