Keep your paws off my nuts! by iowsara

Keep your paws off my nuts!

If you've already looked at @robewells picture of the day you'll already know the story behind this, and you'll also get to see another view of this little chap.

When Rob got home from work we needed to pop along to The Garlic Farm to get a few bits and pieces. I contemplated taking my camera as there are often peacocks wandering around. Being a bit daft, I decided not to bother (well it was looking a bit grim out). By the time we got there the sun had decided to make an appearance. We got what we needed and decided to stop for a cup of tea in the cafe.

As we sat down I looked up and noticed this gorgeous red squirrel. I took quite a few pictures but the zoom on the phone camera isn't great. I really liked this one as he was clutching a nut with his paws and had one in his mouth and was completely still. I am kicking myself that I didn't take my dslr as I think I'd have got a much superior shot - but in any event I'm still happy with what I did get.

Thanks for looking :)
what a soft and beautiful color. Love the double-nut aspect.

Great shot Sara, but yes the phone was a bit out of its depth.

@francoise @chrisiow @hermann @wintivic thank you everyone. Yes Vic, the phone wasn't ideal, I definitely kicked myself!
