Your D.C. Squirrel Week photos

In celebration of D.C. Squirrel Week, we asked readers to send us their squirrel photos and, well, you went (wait for it) nuts.

We received more than 150 photos of squirrels — from black squirrels to fuzzy-tailed gray squirrels. Many of the photos pictured the critters as mischievous nut-gatherers, wreaking havoc on plants, taunting house pets and using their quirky rodent charm to get snacks.

Here are a few of our favorite submissions.
