Introducing leggings. Step into a world of stunning designs.

One of a series of shots of Red Squirrels from around our holiday cottage in the Rothiemurchus forest in the Cairngorms National Park in the Scottish Highlands.I lost count of how many squirrels came to visit.Interestingly there was a preponderance of squirrels with pale tails and grey in varying degrees.
This was another of those who was fond of nibbling monkey nuts on the back lawn.I think it was closly related to the one shown below

    This is unusual, to say the least. Our Red Squirrel mum has undergone a rather strange change to the fur on her back; it was very red & has gradually morphed into a kind of reddish dark gray. But her tail is still brilliant!

  • Ah,the tale of the tail..happy days.
