A Playful Squirrel
I snapped this squirrel in a graveyard in Norfolk earlier this year. when we were on a weekend break. We didn't realise at first that there were dozens of them running around up and down the headstones. It made a wonderful adventure playground for them.
I think there is something rather cheery about squirrels having fun in what might be considered a sombre place and I was intrigued by the contrast between the stillness of the graveyard and the liveliness of the animals - a true sign that life goes on.
They moved so quickly that it was difficult to capture one in a photo, so I was quite pleased with the result. I am glad I managed to get the squirrel's lovely tail in the picture and I love the ivy in the background.
I tend to get quite excited whenever I spot a squirrel as we don't get many where I live. So seeing so many in one place was definitely a treat for me. I hope I get a chance to go back some time.
