A squirrel in a London Park

Abraham Lincoln had yesterday a thought provoking post about environmental and other cruelty to animals. I took this picture of a fit squirrel in St .James's Park in London the other day. I know it is not up to his usual standard, but I will let this picture be my comment. Please read his post.

Looks as if you had to fight bad light! But it ain't that bad. Cute fellow!
Cheers, Klaus

Oh I LOVE squirrels! When I was out with my Mom yesterday...we saw several out and about...scampering up the trees. They always look so happy! I've never seen a squirrel look sad!

Artig liten rakker eller rakkerinnne. Ekorn er herlige dyr ;-)

Noe sååååå vakkert! Ekkorn er noen utrolig vakre dyr. Og med en så flink fotograf, ja da blir bildet perfekt! Tror du får ta meg et kurs i fotografering;)

Forresten. Hvordan får du bildene så stor på bloggen? Eller er det en hemmelighet? Håper indelig det ikke er det da;)

Ha det kos:)

He is a cute little fella... hard to capture though... always scampering around.. at least around here.

An excellent photo and post. Also a reminder to us to be good to our environment and the animals.

I have an award waiting for you on my blog. Please stop by when you have a chance.

Very impressive to have it pose for you! You either have a very impressive lens or you were very quiet and nimble.

It's outstanding by anyone's standards. I love squirrels and miss them as they are not on the island. Such a cute shot.

Nydelig skapning og nydelig bilde!
God helg til deg!!!

Fint bilde av en liten skapning som har det bra. Og godt er det!
Jeg leste gjennom posten som du henviste til.
Enda en god grunn til å oppfordre alle til å tenke litt lenger enn bare her og nå.
Det finnes mange alternative og gode løsninger til sprøyting osv., og som er harmløst for oss alle. Både mennesker og dyr.
Vi vet nemlig ikke konsekvensene av alle lettvinte løsninger i dag. Vi er korttenkte og bortskjemte. Og så altfor lite kritiske! :(

I wouldn't be complaining about a photo like that. Turned out well. Beautiful creature.
