Photographs of red squirrels taken at Formby Point in Merseyside in February 2003. Most taken using aperture priority as they were very active and moving from spots of sunlight to deep shade.
We also get grey squirrels in the garden and the determination and acrobatics they display in trying to access food that was supposedly out of their reach, is something to behold.
A young squirrel has taken to visiting me on my office window sill - largely to try and access the nuts in the bird feeder on the window, but the close proximity has allowed some photo opportunities and some trust to develop. She'll now allow me to stand quite close outside to photograph her.
