Red Squirrel (Sciurus vulgaris)

Two more edited shots from yesterday's session, both intended more as portraits.

  4. Hi Jeremy. Thanks for your kind comment; much appreciated. Just wanted to reassure you that I did say in a previous post that this was a captive Red; I would never want to try to 'fool' anyone.
