This cute little red squirrel had found it’s lunch and no one taking photos was going to distract from eating the pine cone. He looked like he was plyaing the harmonica as he whipped it back and forth and threw it off for another. Photographed on November 27 in snow-less West Hawk Lake, Whiteshell Provincial Park, Manitoba, Canada.
Canon EOS 50D; Sigma 150-500mm lens
F/6.3; 100sec; ISO 400; 500mm

Self taught photographer enjoying retirement in travel and meeting fellow members of Redbubble.
