Yesterday it was birds thrusting their beaks up my camera lens, today it was a squirrel eyeballing me down the lens.
I’m amazed these shots are anywhere near in focus, so close was the squirrel, I managed to step back far enough to get its tail in the frame (for without a fluffy tail, what is a squirrel, but an upmarket rat?) but any further back and I’d have been in the canal.
Oh, maybe I’m being harsh, he is rather cute; grey squirrels don’t hibernate in the UK, they can’t store enough body fat to sustain themselves.
And then, there he was, gone.
Nothing else was moving on the canal
Not even the ducks
( earlier in the day, I went back to look for the ice discs, they were gone; not a trace, but I found other wondrous things.)
