Grey Squirrel in Ashton Court.

 Last: Suspension Bridge . Thumbnails . Next: Thomas Chatterton
I have never been able to get so close to a squirrel before, here about 4 or 5 feet away. The nearby tree must have been a reassuring easy escape route, curiously it only jumped onto the tree when I backed away.

I have only seen squirrels from a distance since last March I think, they certainly seem to become bolder in the colder weather. Perhaps more determined to get an extra bite of whatever its holding.
