I recently spent some time over in the Yorkshire Dales and while there I made use of WildDales Photography Red squirrel reflection pool hide. Having recently seen that Prince Harry visited Northumbria and did not see any red squirrels I think he should head to the Yorkshire Dales as there was no end of red squirrel. The squirrels were not scared either by noise or when Simon or Sarah came to put more nuts out for them. Some of the time time the problem was the squirrels where just to close. Not all the visitors to the reflection pool were squirrels, these pheasants made use of a easy meal. And this one. After the pheasants had move on the squirrels did move to the end of the pool and posed for some photos. What was a challenge was trying to photograph the squirrels jumping But I did manage one shot. Having seen where they jumped I had manually focused on the area. As you can from the next shot that meant that a slight change in the camera angle and only part of the jump was in focus.
