My family told me they’d seen a squirrel with an ice cream. I didn’t believe them (!) but went looking for it. I thought it was in long grass until I saw it in the branches. I have other photos as you can imagine from different angles – so if you want to see them just ask me!

Nikon D80, ISO400, 1/160, f4.2, 90mm focal length (135mm eqvn in 35mm) with Tamron 55-200mm lens handheld.

I enjoy taking photos, and writing. I live at the southern tip of the foothills of the Peak District (think Derby, central England). I had a Nikon D80 with various lenses (now a Sony NEX5N, a dog who tries hard to get into every photo and two lovely daughters :)
