I took this shot a couple of days ago in Jephson Gardens, Leamington Spa, Warwickshire. The squirrel was scampering around the gardens but would halt briefly from time to time. Much to the amusement of onlookers, I followed it around trying to snap it when it stayed motionless. There were a lot of failed shots but I am pleased with this one. It is actually cropped from a much larger frame. I was using a mid range zoom and so could not get close enough to fill the frame with the squirrel.
