Healthy Eating

By Blenkinsopp
Got to have my 5 a day to stay fit and healthy.

More than a few peanuts aren’t very healthy for squirrels so we also leave carrots, apple, mushrooms, pears, sunflower seeds and hazelnuts for the squirrels we photograph. I was in a hurry this day and didn’t cut the food small enough so ruined my “natural” shots. (In some of them it looks like they are struggling to even lift the chunks)

I just liked the way he was looking towards the camera in this.

Thank You for the C&Cs on my blue tit - much appreciated.

Outstanding!! Superb image Sandra.

I couldn't help but laugh at the thought of those squirrels "clean & jerking" a huge chunk of food Smile
