Red Squirrel

By richmowil    
Had a week away up north last week freezing and loads of snow. So much so I couldn't get to some of the places I was trying to get to. Sounds like a good excuse to go back!! On the day I tackled the squirrels there was freezing fog around for most of the day but it worked well on the backgrounds. -6 at start and -6 at the finished. ( when my feet were numb) Can't wait to go back.

Many thanks for your votes comments and awards on past images, much appreciated.

Have a great day and I'll catch up with everyone later!!

A beautiful squirrel image , Bill ! SmileSmileSmile - Jukka.

Superb! The composition, detail, light and pose are sublime. The squirrel has the air of a Victorian worthy who has scaled a rocky outcrop and is feeling rightly pleased! (It's getting late and I have these balm pot notions at the end of the day!) I can do no more than add to your embarrassment of riches!! SmileSmileSmile

Probably the best RS image I've ever seen!!
Itís a great shame the red squirrel is on the wane, itís such a beautiful creature compared to the Grey.
