I photographed this little girlie at one of the British Wildlife Centre's photography days... she was so sweet that I had to draw her. I am not a fan of wild animals in captivity, but these red squirrels have a massive enclosure (I couldn't see the fence in any direction from where I was taking the photos, and they have full height trees to leap about in).
I have tried to capture the softness of her fur, especially her elegant tail, in contrast to the roughness of the branch she's sitting on.
A possible (slightly amusing) title for this piece could be "Oooh, an acorn... ...argh, who are you" [when she catches sight of me]
