Following on from last post I am trying to take advantage of fleeting opportunities for pictures with a wintry feel. At the start of the year we had lots of frosty nights, however, the frost usually disappeared before I dared venture out on the icy roads. Very frustrating since the cold bring lots of visitors to the tasty treats.
Then, belatedly we had a little snow (now gone). This was my opportunity. Red Squirrels are constant companions at my feeding site, nevertheless, it was heartening to grab a picture in snow. Usually they deploy a smash-and-grab technique, never pausing for a picture, but with persistence, I managed to get a pleasing view in glorious winter light.
