Great shot Diana........and, I am sorry. I have a hard time seeing squirrels as anything other than rats with furry tails. They get into attics and steal food from vegetable gardens and fruit trees.

And, this is a very "cute" photo.

Peter is right.
They chew cables, eat bird's eggs, eat young birds, run up your trouser leg and are pretty disgusting really.
That said, what a charming picture of the little *********. (Don't bother working out the * - I didn't count).

Very good work, Diana.

I am one of the few (so far) who think squirrels are fabulous Tongue. Lovely shot of this little fellow. I have recently posted some shots of the one which frequents my garden and so far he hasn't chewed any cables or young birds or nicked any vegetables. Maybe he is just happy to share the nuts with the birds GrinGrinWink
Excellent shot

Thanks for compliments on the photo Smile Shame about the mixed reviews about the subject Sad

I suppose like any wild animal they do what they need to do to survive. If it was an impressive shot of a mountain lion or a snow leopard (off the top of my head) would your comments have been the same because they eat from the wild ~ other animals as opposed to 'your' fruit and vegeables?? I appreciate any feedback, but have to say in this instance I tend to agree with PhilT2, they are part of the wonderful population that is nature.

I was thrilled as a child to have them come to my hand to eat nuts, and still would be today. I plan to get shots (probably next year) of the endangered red squirrel as we are lucky enough to have one of the only two red squirrel reserves nearby here. My view is that all living things have their place on Earth, and maybe if 'Mankind' hadn't built over so much of the countryside then these little fellas wouldn't have to encroach on people's gardens for food as they would have their own plentiful supply Smile

Well said, Diana.
I can put up with the first dozen wrecking things but they get out of hand here.
It's like people - too many spoil things for the few by population density.
... and yes, they eat baby birds out of nests unfortunately.
The reds are a different thing.
They are conservative in diet and don't cause such problems.
There again, they have become so rare (people again - not the Greys) that sites like Formby etc., have become almost zoos for the public.

All that said, your work is very good and I'd like to see more of it.

Thanks ddolfelin Smile

I didn't know about the baby bird thing till I looked it up, and I know in some areas they can get out of hand, but agree that it's comparable to people! Wink I'd love to see Formby expanded for the Reds (squirrels that is not the wonderful Liverpool Football Team he he) or more areas where they can be introduced. Yes the Greys can be a nuisance but I just love all nature so much it's hard to find bad things to say about them Smile

Squirells are fasinating little creatures, I,m lucky enough to have an albino in the grounds.
