Welcome back little fellow

By annettep38  
Many thanks for all the kind votes and comments on the night shot from Marrans.
I was going to put another one up ( or some flutterbies... Smile ) BUT

9 month after we had seen the last red squirrel we were sure they had not survived the hard winter! Yesterday Chris spotted one... so guess what this morning the lens was ready in the bedroom, the window was thrown open at first light and at last I got him.

Has the cute factor but very well captured as well, Annette. The backlit brush is excellent. Two fine captures.

Two very natural images, Annette, with V 2 my preferred choice as it seems to have cottoned on to your activity, casting a beady eye your way.
