Red Squirrel shoot with Simon Phillpotts

On Sat 8th I was lucky enough to go out with Simon taking images of red squirrels.  Not having done any wildlife photography before it was always going to be a challenge for me, I'm used to taking ages to set up my shot then waiting ages for the right light, but nobody told the squirrels that, so to start with I was missing all my previsualised images.

After a couple of hours I started to get the hang of it and as the day drew on I managed to get a couple of nice shots.

Standing around on the snow for several hours though froze my feet and I was very glad to get back to the shelter of the hide and get a warm drink.
A fantastic day, one which I'll remember for quite a while...
