Red Squirrel Portrait

By Blenkinsopp
Some sunflower seeds spilled from my pocket as I unfolded the chair hide. He soon found them and got very close.

I tried to get him in portrait format but got tangled in the front of the hide as I tried to turn the camera and I hardly dare move. I had to settle for this which was taken in landscape and the sides cropped off

Thank you for the C&Cs on my previous images I hope you like this one too.

I think that's a smile on his face! Probably enjoying your struggles along with the sunflower seeds! Wonderful portrait of this delightful little beauty.

We could all do with happy accidents like that Neil. This is a superb capture of the Red and the head and shoulders crop is superb.
