Nature photo challenge – day 5

This picture was taken right on the estate where I live! It’s very green and well tended, with loads of tall trees, ivy and shrubs.

Grey squirrel

There are so many squirrels in and around the estate, and because they’re so used to humans they’re fairly tame. They’re comical to watch because they dash around at a rate of knots, chasing their fellow furry buddies and clambering up trees. When a human gets close they stand stock still, as if their lack of movement will hide their existence. Then, when you get too close for comfort, they’ll dart off into a bush or behind a tree trunk to hide away.

I know grey squirrels are classed as vermin, but I love these little guys. They cheer up my morning as I leave home and welcome me back at the end of the day.

The rules for the 7-day nature photo challenge are simple. Just post your favourite nature photo each day and nominate another blogger everyday, for the next 7 days.

I’ve been nominated by Tou89Lou – pop on over and check her out!

Today I nominate Jessica at Thrifty Blogger as she always takes such beautiful pictures, so I’d love to see her interpretation of this challenge.

Thanks, as always, for reading! x
