Red Squirrel

It was a shame to have had very little opportunity to photograph the Red Squirrels while on holiday in Scotland. This was one of the few shots.


On this day I had reached the point of giving up with the low light 1600ISO attempts and so experimented using the SB700 flash which didn't seem to bother them. The only problem was they were not hanging around on the tree and hence this shot (uncropped) is not very well framed as I would like - but at least a record of these great animals.
