Thanks to every who helped/commented with my Burn photograph, especially Willie, great learning from this, re-sposted a mode which looks much better.

Today back to more familiar ground with another Red Squirrel, this time is quite challenging light conditions.

As always thanks for taking a look, all C&C welcome.

Beautiful use of back lighting, David, and still managing to capture excellent detail in the shadowed parts: very fine shot.

Shaun, the lichen dies almost immediately due to the pollution down here unfortunately (sad but true).

Thanks everyone for your wonderful comments. Very much appreciated.
