Red Squirrel
He couldn't get away quick enough, could he LOL

Think I was lucky to get so much of him in the frame, it was such an unexpected leap. I think there's two toe nails missing!!

Well caught! The image is full of life and joy :D I'm usually so startled when anything suddenly jumps that I miss the shot entirely. :S

I wish we had more of these reds down here Delia, lovely shot and many tfs.
You've really captured a sense of movement here Delia. Aren't they beautiful creatures? To go into confessional mode, I've seen them only once, in Abernethy Forest on my last visit to Scotland, in 1983 :-( - that's awful, I know.

The picture isn't spoiled at all by a couple of toenails missing from the frame. As long as the squirrel itself still has them! All in all, well done!
