Friday 23rd April - Poynton Pool

Straight from work, forget tea, more important things to do. Like photographing rabbits for instance. Only there were none. That's wildlife for you. I lay in the grass, with my camera poised at the area where they usually come out and feed on the grass,getting funny looks off people as they walked by with their dogs, which insisted by the way, of coming over and sticking their noses where the sun don't shine, just like dogs do.why is this? Anyway, lying there, waiting for Roger to show up, I noticed a Squirrel on a very large tree coming out of a hole about a quarter of the way up.I instantly aimed my camera at this location, but my cracking joints must of scared it as it went back in. Whilst it was back inside I moved to a better vantage point and waited, yet again. Again it stuck it's head out and then quickly ran and sat on a branch. A short while later a second Squirrel stuck it's head out, it quickly ran and sat on the branch next to the first one. Then knock me down with a feather, a third Squirrel stuck it's head out. This stayed in the doorway for quite a while as the other two ran off up the tree.

Below is a series of Squirrel shots as they appeared out of their nest, one by one.I thought you might like to see these record shots of the event.

There was one



Then there were two



Then there were still two



Then there were three



Still three



I couldn't leave my Mute Friends out.





Until next time.
