The Lord said, Behold, there is a place by me and thou shalt stand upon a rock: and I will put thee in a clift of the rock while I pass by. Exodus 33: 21-22

Upon a rock inside a clift
The red squirrel stood
To receive his gift...
And found it good...
Poetry by me AJP

Two of the red squirrels are back after a long hard winter and it is good to see them looking healthy. The mate to this one has a dug out underneath the rock but I managed to capture a photo of the little one on top by standing on a step stool with my telephoto shooting downward through the old rolled glass window before a fox squirrel chased him away.

It was a tricky shot because the branches sometimes would cover its face depending on where he was standing...It was also very sunny outside so that I needed to manually stop down to F/32 .... of course focusing through old rolled glass is extremely challenging too because of the wavy texture in the glass..
