Red Squirrel

Photographed on 24th April 2011 at the British Wildlife Centre, Lingfield, Surrey.

Camera information: Nikon D7000 with 18-200mm lens at 200mm, f/5.6, 1/125s, iso400, raw.
Software: Capture NX2

The title refers to the eponymous character in the Tufty Club; in which I am a former proud badge holder. Any others still around or are we now endangered, like Tufty?

    what a beauty he is. Did you use a flash? his eye is red.

  • Thanks tracy. Good point. I used a detachable head to highlight the eyes, and as a fill-in flash. Red squirrels usually have brown eyes (I think). The highlight does look reddish. Perhaps this one was a little demonic ;-)
