Squirrelling About In Bad Light

Facebooktwittermail

All day today the light was beautiful, until I decided to go out to one of the local nature reserves and it went very overcast and almost dark.

I was determined to get something though, there were Grey Squirrels everywhere and I managed to get a shot of this little guy foraging around. It’s not super sharp as it was tough to try and freeze him running around with only 1/125sec shutter speed but (for me anyway) it’s a keeper as I like the framing the ferns gave the photo.

On the way back to the car, I was getting blitzed by discarded Acorn shells as I walked through the forest!
