Spot the squirrel

Post by davelumb » Mon Oct 15 2018 20:10

Plenty of tree rats scoffing acorns today. This one looked small and was quite approachable, which made me think it was a youngster.

Chap it
Let me ask you one question. Is your money that good. Will it buy you forgiveness. Do you think that it could. I think you will find When your death takes its toll All the money you made Will never buy back your soul.

Hi Kenny
Not that I've tried photographing reds, I do know people who have.
I think greys are bolder than reds and give you a little more time to get a lens on them. Still have to be a bit sharpish though!

The greys round here are almost tame in some places.

Loads of woodland walks so they're probably quite used to people??

Have a look at Squirrel Hunter on you tube, he gets plenty of decent shots of greys in various woodlands :thumbs:

I was laying a patio for a customer in the middle of a housing estate a few years ago and a grey would run the full length of the terrace on the wall, I mean the vertical wall between the ground floor and upstairs.
