Squirrel in a Scurry

Squirrel in a Scurry

Photo Information
I've set up some birding props for shooting, but alas, the squirrels must get in on the act! He got in a huff when a bird flew in and perched below him.

Taken with Pentax 55 - 300 and heavily cropped.

A lovely charismatic shot of a squirrel, the movement making it all the better as far as I'm concerned.

Love the way it appears to be wagging its tail.

Super action shot even if it did try to steal the birds perch

Lovely to see a red one.

We only have the greys here and they are everywhere, even in leafy suburbia.
