Cairngorms National Park, Scotland


I love the red squirrel they are so full of character and charm.  I noticed how one squirrel would always make it’s approach to my site by running over a fallen tree and leaping over to another.  I thought this is the perfect situation to capture what it was doing naturally.  Not as easy as you might think to capture this shot as they move so fast but trial and error paid off and I captured an image I was happy with.
