Jan trying to convince the squirrel to pose for a photo for him. This is a holiday photo and not one to score "clicks". Just sharing our few days together with Jan and Meri with you as will be the next few pictures as well.

For me photography is all sorts of things and not only about how good it looks, its about capturing memories and moments. Fantastic capture, wish we had some this friendly here - lol

A grand capture Georg, and a fine exposure of Jan and the squirrel, sounds like the title of a book, lol...good mottled light in your exposure.
