Now, this young squirrel and I have been hanging for almost a year now, and finally I was allowed to take a few photos! (A few nuts may have helped.)

Where we live we have an abundance of squirrels so every hike we go on, and even just walking the dog at the park we come across them. I found the best way to shot squirrel is to make them angry in their territory, just by walking by. The last time I was out shooting this one squirrel was squaring off with me and I got some really nice shots of him!
Animal Photography is challenging. I do enjoy a challenge!
Nice pics. I’ve never seen a squirrel with an orange tail. Interesting.
Well done. I sympathize totally. There are a couple of squirrels in the garden. They often climb on the cherry tree next to my library window. And it has taken me almost a year to get a decent shot.
(Nuts may help. I will bear that in mind)
Really sweet! Your patience paid off well! Go nuts!
I have a camera whitch takes pictures of animals and have got billions of blurred squirrels!
