I shot this at (of all the places) The Butterfly House, nr Sheffield. f/2.8 ensured that the enclosure wire meshing was made invisible and I was lucky enough to find this fella munching on something for quite some time in this position.

I understand the light at the bottom-left is distracting, but it's probably the backlighting source and this is the best squirrel picture I have captured to date.

A rather brilliant close-up photograph depicting this rather handsome looking rarely spotted Red Squirrel, lovely pose, stunning detail, and a host of beautiful natural colours.

Don't worry about the bright spot. It can be toned down later, [filled in pale green?]. We are so glad you loaded this super squirrel with all the rich colour hues and the perky spirit. TG
