I needed one of the squirrel shots in an almost square format, so having processed it, thought I would upload it here.

Slightly different from previous versions in that in this one the squirrel is pretty much square on.

Thanks for te GEA Rahul.

Ah yes the Countryfile Squirrel, ever wished when you entered something you hadn't just slapped down the first thought to enter your head when it said title. If I hear one more person impersonating Matt Baker saying "Snowy Squirrel" I'll scream Wink

Hard to take bad shot really in conditions like this, well unless your name is Will Grin

Let's see if that provokes a reaction

Planning I have to defer to the authority on red squirrels at this location - Pete Cairns - for that aspect of the image. Patience, yep 21 freezing hours spread over 7 mornings. Blooming cold!
