The High Ground

I have to admit this photo was set-up with the aid of some peanuts, but the first visitor to the stump was a peckish robin... the squirrel only obliged with this perfect pose when it noticed the robin! I think this photo shows how getting down on the ground at the animal's level can produce a much more pleasing composition; even if it's not good for the lower back it can be worth it. The photograph was taken in the pine forest at the beautiful National Trust reserve at Formby near Liverpool in England, one of the few remaining red squirrel locations left in England. The reserve also contains miles of sand dunes and beach walks.
