Ha, ha, thanks all.

You'll be pleased to know that I have another 5 or 600 squirrel shots to wade my way through.

Funnily enough I prefer this one and only uploaded the posing shot because of the light on the underside of the squirrel.

Doubt it will get near the lofty heights of 195 votes though.

Thought about cropping Barrie, but as it was literally taken at the same time, same squirrel as previous shot it would have been obvious.

If I were to print it then I probably would.

I could be uploading squirrel shots until next year and not repeat an image, but I won't!

Will uploaded some more cresties or woodpeckers.

Well at least it is not a robin, of which I also have plenty of material from the break in Scotland.

So just to break the squirrel monopoly, or is that monotony, I shall upload a robin next.

There's a queue of shots to be next years Christmas Card Grin Maybe use this one for ePZ.

Thanks all.

Really will stop posting the squirrels for a bit, but I just can't resist them, after all it was my third or fourth time hoping for squirrels in the snow, so I may have gotten a bit trigger happy when the event finally happened.
