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.
This one stretched out to peak from behind the branch
Then he came out a bit more
Now he is gifting me with a pose before he takes off again.
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.
