Red Squirrel with snow blowing into its face

We have had very little snow this winter in the wild north of Scotland so when it was forecast for the weekend all plans were changed to take advantage of it.


First port of call was the squirrels. At first it appeared that the forecast was wrong as there was no sign of snow, but then it arrived and within a few minutes the ground had turned white. I got this image of the red squirrel peering into the snow when it first started, it looked as though he was surprised to see it.
