Well!..........someone has to 'shoot' them Wink

Taken in a woodland setting, H/Held in low light at 1/40 sec.
Considered by many to be a pest but do remember that it's man that put them here in the UK and like all creatures they are born with the will to live as we all do.
Many thanks for taking time out to view and comment on my Alert Bunny and a special thank you to-Carol, Ann, Adrian, Ed and Julia for the UA's, I really do appreciate and value the support.
Just popping out for a couple of hours but will catch up with you all a little later.
Regards,
Geoff.

Hand held at 330mm........ a steady hand needed there even at f/5.3.
Wonderful shot, Geoff.......very well done.

He is a bit of a pest IMO Geoff but as you suggest,quite rightly, he deserves his place in the sun. This is,as we expect from you, a first class shot.

I believe you are aware, that they are not on my X-mas list, but even so, they don't half make a good subject, especially if the light is correct

Super shot Geoff

A lovely shot of this squirrel - the light is wonderful. These are the ones that abound in our yard. We feed them, corn and seeds and they have so far been well behaved and not bothered our roof or attic. They are such acrobats when they try to rob the bird feeders.
