Yesterday I mentioned the animals in Elk Island being happy to pose. Well, none more so than this little chap.
When we spotted him in the tree, we all jumped on cameras thinking it would be the shot of a second. But, I kid you not, this little guy was still hanging around and posing 5 minutes later.
In fact, I’d swear when we turned away he started complaining!
Here’s a few other shots.
Oh, the little white flecks on his coat aren’t issues with the camera, they’re little snowflakes – there was still a lot around. I may clone them out if I print one of these though as out of context they are a little detracting.
And no, I don’t think he would have let me brush him down…
(Oh, I was told this was a Red Squirrel. In the absence of other contradictory evidence I am assuming this to be correct)
