Red squirrels are such characters and are so much fun to observe and photograph. They travel from tree to tree whenever possible and seldom use the ground to move about. It you observe them closely you can predict which trees and branches they will leap from allowing you capture an image of them travelling through the air.
Other red squirrel images can be viewed at my new web site www.natureobserved.co.uk
