I often see squirrels on my walks, but they rarely sit still long enough for me to even get my lens cap off, never mind take a photo. Darren manages to get plenty of photos, I don’t know how – must be all the sitting still for brew stops.
When I noticed this chap at the base of an oak in a field by the Row, he was so still, and I was so far away, that I began to doubt my initial idea that it was a squirrel.
But not only did it pose for this shot, but after S shouted and it climbed the tree, it posed again in the bole.
I think that the acorns must have been just to good to be distracted from. It certainly looks like a well fed squirrel.
