Thanks for the UA Angi. Users personal awards are always appreciated.

No squirrels were harmed in the making of this photo.

They actually seemed to enjoy it, there was the option for them to walk between the two stumps and some chose to do that. Others chose to sit at the top of the stump and just intimidate the other squirrels whilst they ate all the best hazelnuts.
Cracking shot! Spot-on timing and focus.

Thanks Howson, Sam, Cole and Brian for the UAs.

Thanks Val for the GEA.

Thanks all for the comments and votes.

Definitely not a slow-burner this one Grin

Have a few others, but not all jumps exposed the underside of the squirrel. The twist was caused by another squirrel being sat at the usual landing point enforcing a mid air change of direction.
