Doing the Dance

By SteveMoulding  
'Doing the Dance' , a quote from the movie 'Evan Almighty', which I thought was quite appropriate for this shot of a Red Sqirrel. She's a star and I don't know how many times she ran up me and sat on my shoulder and a quite a poser too. I hope you like her too. I had a great day out yesterday with my sis and met some old and some new friends. Thanks for looking and sorry for just clicking the last couple of days. Many thanks for all your C&C's.
Enjoy the rest of the weekend and the coming week. The weather looks to be great.

Steve.

A star is born and then photographed for her press release. What a joy to see a red squirrel, I have never seen one in real time. Well captured.

Never heard of a Red behaving in such a way. Clearly determined to star in many an image with this attitude!! Delightful.

A lovely image Steve, she sounds very tame and it must have been a delight for her to sit on your shoulder.

I love it Steve, was she tame?

Jackie
you chopped the tail......was he/she too close

Hi Geoff, Unfortunately she was too close. If I had backed off it might have disturbed her.

was she tame?

Hi Jackie, She lives at the BWC in Surrey and has become quite tame, she has to check some people to see if they have anything she would like to eat.
