On the run

By drbird  
Red Squirrels aren't my favourite animals but I have to agree they can look cute and are pretty fast. This image was taken at Alan McFadyen hide ( which is one of the very few reflection pools I like in fact my favourite…which has all to do with the background and the size. I am always surprised how these animal are always in a rush never chilled ou and always on the run….well I guess that’s life further down in the food chain. Technically it was important to keep the ISO up and shoot wide open to get a nice background

The cynic in me almost didn't believe this. I particularly like the foilage reflections, which look quite fractal or kaleidascopic. Have a UA on me.
