I have recently started a photography course, in the hopes of improving both my blog and travel photography but also to help justify an expensive upgrade to a DSLR. Each week we are given homework assignments and I can honestly say, I’ve never enjoyed homework so much!
So the reason for this little post is just to share a few pictures that I’ve recently taken when out completing my assignments, simply because the subjects are so darn cute!
Meet two of London’s cheekiest squirrels:
When I got too close for comfort, this little guy clung upside-down on the tree trunk and remained dead-still, thinking he was camouflaged with the red-brown bark. He stayed in this splayed position for a good few minutes before he decided he was brave enough to run down the trunk and over to the next tree…
This friend ran around the back of the tree trunk to hide from me, then quickly peeped out to see if I was still there. Surprise! I was! I was camera-ready and managed to snap this cute shot before he sprinted up into the branches.
More food posts to come soon but I couldn’t help but share these cute little guys with my readers, who I suspect largely consist of fellow animal-lovers!
