leaping red squirrel

By Elliebarn  
i've just been re-processing some images, for an AV, for a talk at a local camera club, and came across this one,

taken at my old red squirrel feeding station, including a great jumping set-up.
Unfortunately the squirrels have become very wary, and i have a few suspicions, but the site is no longer suitable for photography unfortunately.

I was hoping to get them in their winter coat, but will settle for this, one of a few from here Smile

I set this up, after moving to scotland, and while i was unemployed, looking for work last autumn Smile
