Today a very pretty Red Squirrel enjoying his breakfast. I went to Scotland and spent some time with Peter Cairns of Northshots http://www.northshots.com/ and this was taken at one of his hides. I can not recommend Peter and Amanda more strongly, top people.

As always thanks for dropping by, all C&C welcome

I particularly like the backlighting on the tail.

Beautiful shot with wonderful contre jour lighting. I find those bright out of focus circles in the foreground very distracting though, which is a shame.
