Red Squirrel

By SteveMackay  
Red squirrel in flight, taken at Mark Hamblin's hide in the Cairngorms. Out of shot to the left is a tree stump with a little tin of hazel nuts, out of shot to the right is a lower stump, this little one kept climbing the taller stump to get his/her hazel nut and then jumped down to the lower stump, then off into the forest to stash it and after about 10 failed attempts I finally got this mid air shot. Thanks for looking, cheers!Smile

Be proud you never gave up - you are rewarded with a lovely shot!
I can imagine including what it was about to land on might be even better - that's for the next time!
