The red squirrels were too fixated on chasing each other a few weeks ago, but now that the first rush of hormones has subsided, they are coming up close to get at seeds and to have a closer look. i am shooting with my Canon Rebel XS and a 70-300 mm zoom lens.

Now he is gifting me with a pose before he takes off again.IMG_0034-2

It is fun to have these encounters with the red squirrels and although they are fast I can usually count on their having enough curiosity to enable me to get a clear shot.

  1. Nice texture on these guys. I can see the variations in each little hair. My former husband nailed it when he said squirrels are the perfect example of great hardware and lousy software! (That’s why we see them coating the roads too often. :()
