That is quite a pose.
Louis: It is, but it wouldn't allow me to come near enough for a good crisp shot.

Cheeky little creature - very cute too.
Louis: They are. I remember from when we lived in an area where they abounded in the garden - when mating in a tree they sometimes forget who should be holding onto the branch ...

OMG! It looks like a pose of an animated character in a "cheeky' movie. Too funny.
Louis: Some elements of cheeky makes up their characters.

LOL, Great title. I guess these buggers are smarter than I used to give them credit for.
Louis: hanks Martin. I remember from when we lived in an area where they abounded in the garden - when mating in a tree they sometimes forget who should be holding onto the branch ...

About to sneeze...no face mask available...don't want to be accused of spreading H2N3 aka Squirrel Flu.
Louis: I see political correctness in europe got them to rename pig's flu to mexican flu. It seems to me pigs have better lobbyists than mexicans.
Nice, perfect timing. Love the DOF.
Louis: Thank you John

Lol, is it the hand or the leg?? Either way, great capture! Love the low angle, surprised he didn't scurry off.
Louis: Well seen about the leg smile Long lens keeps them from scurrying initially. Thanks Mia.
this is hilarious, Louis. Are you sure, it's not kissing the hand that just satisfied me? smile
