This photo shoot didn't go quite according to plan. My model was waiting impatiently even before I had taken the camera out of the car and she became very interested when she heard the rustle of the packet of nuts. I put a couple of nuts on top of a tree stump, hoping for a nicely posed and composed photo but she was much more interested those in the packet. First she had a good look at the other camera.
And then she found the packet of nuts.
So I gave in and took these photos, which were not quite what I had in mind.
I reckon she ate about a dozen pecan halves. She carried the last one up a tree and looked quite full up. I did manage a few photos without the packet in view and I'll post those in the coming days. With her grey tail I think this squirrel is not one of those I saw a couple of weeks ago but I wonder if she is the one I photographed a year ago. If so, she was just as confident last year.
