Here's looking at you!


A young grey squirrel relaxing on our bird table, having exhausted itself working out how to get at the peanuts we leave out for the birds.


I'll be back again in a week or so, for a few days.

Excellent. It seems to be conveying some important message, something like: "Hi, Ellie is there some more bread left?"

Enjoy yet another break - lucky girl.
Lady, drop the camera I want some more. smile
Great Capture

Oh wonderful! You do these sorts of shots so well! He really does look like he's worn out. I hope he was rewarded for his starring role.
The closest I have ever been to a squirrel. Excellent shot. Enjoy your break Ellie.

My goodness! Great catch. This is the best squirrel close-up I've seen.
Hi Ellie, this is great! The squirrel looks like it's posing for you! smile Nice shot. I can't get over how much reach that 300mm has on the Olympus (600mm). Thanks for sharing!

If I know grey squirrels - it won't give up Ellie!

EJWilkins: Why thank you Liam, it was actually quite funny to watch this little chap, he was exhausted
Never seen a giant squirrel before!
Hi Ellie, just seen your picture of the squirrel - MAGIC! I've spent a fortune on peanuts for "our" resident squirrel - but the pidgeons always get there first!!!!Mike
