Finally, Many Keepers with R10 + RF 100-400

It's been a frustrating, yet enlightening week learning my new R10 + RF100-400 + 1.4x teleconverter. With your helpful advice, however, I've succeeded in getting the basics. For now, I've shut down subject tracking and have gotten much better AF results with one-spot. I've also taken off the teleconverter and will probably return it. Last night's images helped me decide that the 1.4x is more of a hindrance than a help since I often shoot critters in the evening in lower light conditions, especially in the winter. Without the 1.4x and having more stops of light available, I got sharper, less noisy images.

I need some help identifying the orange critter I shot through my passenger car window. From a distance, I thought it was a fox, but close-up, and seeing that tail, I'm not so sure.

Thanks everyone for your input and ideas on using my new system. It has really helped. The images below are SOOC, but cropped a bit to isolate the critter better.

What is this?
