ABOUT ME

I live in a camper van with a couple of West Highland Terriers for company.
My passion is photography but it is a work in progress.

SQUIRREL.

I go out at least twice a day and wander along with the dogs and a camera. First thing this morning everything was damp and cold. I believe dreicht is the word for it. I had a couple of campers to say goodbye to so just after eleven out we sallied to look for Jays. I can see them but still haven't got an image. I did get this.
Red Squirrel
There are lots of these but I have an assistant who insists on sending them up into the tree canopy. 
Molly is twelve now and must have spent several hours annoying squirrels but she has never caught one. Whilst cursing her I admire her perseverance as she still pursues them with unabated vigour.
Enjoy your week.

  1. A super Red Squirrel image, Adrian. It just goes to show that not all wildlife needs to be seen in close-up! Molly seems to be really cute, and very active for a twelve-year-old! Have a great week - - - Richard

    1. Richard, I was lucky it ran in front of the sun. I was fortunate to see the sun. Molly is young at heart.

  3. Most of my close-up red squirrel pictures were taken years ago at the Formby/Freshfield Nature Reserve. It was wonderful but they were so tame it was hard not to get pictures.

    1. Graham, these are very wary, more so when the dogs are about. Very wise of them.

  4. Your 'spotter' did well to find this for you Adrian! It's always a pleasure to see these beauties, even more so to see a truly wild one...[;o)

    1. Trevor, these are wild and nobody feeds them. If I drive through the forest in the Mule or tractor they tend not to take to the trees.

    1. Sorry for the late reply Monica. It's good for the squirrel that she can't climb.

  8. Both beautiful photos. The light in the first - the emotion in the second. (Re. Marty's comment . . something strange is happening with comments. Two of mine have vanished from WordPress blogs so I thought it was a WP problem - but maybe it affects Blogger too.)
