Red Squirrel in Autumn

After photographing squirrels a fair amount over the past two winters I wanted to capture them in the beautiful autumn colours in the Caledonian Pine forests around the Cairngorms.

 

The bracken is just starting to turn a rusty colour, giving some interesting tones and textures and shows how the squirrel blends into the landscape at this time of year.

 

This guy posed on this interesting stump long enough for me to capture some shots.
