Red Squirrel Modelling

The red squirrels have been challenging to photograph the past few years, numbers have been down the last two winters so was not holding out hope to capture images of them in the heather this year.  Thankfully their numbers have recovered this year as we had a number of different squirrels visiting the site.  All looking very healthy and in good condition.  They all have their own personalities and this little squirrel had a particular taste for hazelnuts and would stand on it’s hind legs and pose long enough for me to capture this cheeky chappy.  I hope to photograph them again with their ear tufts and bushy tails over the next few months, hopefully with some snow too!
