Red Squirrel – Tree trunk
This inquisitive little red squirrel wasn’t phased by me or my camera at all. Rather than keep using my long telephoto lens, this gave me the opportunity to get a different perspective with my wide angle lens. This image was taken at 18mm on full frame, so the squirrel was just an inch or two from the front of the lens! This wide angle image highlights their amazing ability to scale a tree headfirst thanks to their double-jointed ankles.
About the Red Squirrel
Red squirrels were once the only squirrels in the UK, but sadly due to the introduction of the much larger American greys our native population has been almost completely displaced. Thankfully there are still a few isolated strongholds in the UK and in an exciting new development they are actually starting to make a steady comeback helped by the resurgence of the pine marten.
