Polydrafter squirrels

I put together these two polydrafters using the Polyform Puzzle Solver by Jaap Sherphuis… https://www.jaapsch.net/puzzles/polysolver.htm

The red squirrel can produce an attractive periodic tessellation. It is made up of a large motif containing all six rotations and their mirrors.

Six grey squirrels that rotate around a common point, produce a polyhex (a regular heptahex). These motifs, whether mirrored or not, can abut one another in endless arrangements. The greyed out areas denote reflections.

Also, polyhex motifs can be aligned differently around a central polyhex, which will alter the overall appearance.

Here’s another pattern that can only be put together one way (two, if you include its mirrored counterpart).
