    Just a few squirrel shots - not too many, though I have not gone through all the shots - worst part is how quick they move!

    all taken with Canon 400D, canon 70-200mm f2.8 IS and 1.4 teleconverter

    Albino grey squirrel - a tricky shot as he was behind a lot of wire, only possible as he was sleeping nearer the back of the cage, so I could get right up close to the bars and not get them in the shot.

    The first one is the winner, 'hands down'. Wonderful capture.

    Thanks all! I agree I do like that first one - a shame that its not soo good fullsized (noisy even on the squirrel sadly) but at this size its just right :) Definatly a pose I was happy to get
