Photo-a-Day (Sunday, 5th February, 2012)
Nice one ron,
bright and colourful
That is a brilliant shot Ron, fine detail and the eye is in sharp focus too.
A really beautiful rodent. Great shot Ron.
smashing photo ron,is it a red squirel or grey?
After talking to you the other day Ron I went and videoed this squirrel.
stocking up before the snow came.Nice how the colours of the squirrel blends with the branch
incer, it's a Grey.
Great shot Ron and caught in a lovely pose. Good depth of field isolates the subject really well. Wish I had taken this.
Was reading the other day that the grey squirrel which decimated the native red squirrels are now facing decimation themselves, apparently there is now an influx of black squirrels and they are breeding faster than the greys. I kid you not, they were first introduced into the country in 1912 and their population is now soaring!
Great photo Ron,Now I must dig out my old Olympus and start again!Cyril,It's happening everywhere,"'nuff said"
Fred it's true, look it up on wikipedia or Google, the Daily Mail did an article on the black squirrels and that's were I read about them, I had never heard of them before then.
Great photo Ron. Sometimes it seems a pity that squirrels are rodents, they look so cute and lend themselves to good photography!
...to Fred and Cyril, we get a diverse selection of colouring in the squirrels in our back garden here in mid-western Ontario,and there is a town south of here that has a group which includes several albinos.
