What a cracking photo! O0 I 've never had one stay still for long enough for me to get a shot off.. Let alone get close enough to it.

It was taken from a hide where food had been put out to attract wildlife. I used a 70 - 200mm zoom lens with a 2x teleconverter, (effectively making it a 140 - 400mm) on a Canon 5D, not something I regularly carry around whilst walking. Still, the best I've managed so far.

I'd love to see a red squirrel in real life.

You can see them in captivity in a very large enclosure in the Welsh Mountain Zoo at Colwyn Bay, if you're ever in the area.

Thanks, Fernman - we do go to North Wales several times a year so I'll make a note of that.  O0

They're wild (introduced) on Anglesey - one of my sons saw one in the gardens of Plas Newydd House when he was on holiday last July.

A few years ago my wife and I were sat eating lunch by a path in Grizedale forest when a Red Squirrel appeared on a branch in a tree just opposite us. Shortly afterwards a large group of ramblers walked directly underneath it chatting amongst themselves while they went. Not one of them noticed the squirrel which seemed totally unperturbed by their passing. I am sure that it would have made their day if just one of them had taken the time to just look around.
