Just one more Red Squirrel(Sciurus vulgaris) image to round off the series for the moment, as too many become boring. This is a full frame image.

Many thanks for your kind comments on yesterdays Squirrel Easter Card and a big thank you to Ann (Pluckyfilly) for her User Award. All really appreciated and I hope you are continuing to enjoy the Easter break, despite the weather Smile

Very well done Sylvia for getting two of these lovely little creatures in one image, not normally very sociable, except at mating time.
An excellent image, very well captured.

Beautiful capture Sylvia and I think quite original. I dont think I have seen a shot with two of the little beauties at the same time.
