I`ve seen so many squirrels on Trek Earth already...
They are a bit different, depending on the country they come from. I decided to give up my favourite theme that day, which is "landscapes", and share with you a typical polish foxy squirrel.
If you haven`t been in Poland and haven`t seen polish squirrel yet, you don`t know what the russet or foxy colour means, my friend :)
This animal is a symbol of polish woods, parks and gardens even.
That`s why they are very friendly if you take some nuts with you. One well-known habit of some species of squirrels is gathering and storing nuts for the winter.
That morning I didn`t take nuts with me. Actually, I never use any bribes to stimulate my wild models to pose for me. I prefer to capture just a natural activity of searching food, which is a bit more ambitious for a photographer. Sometimes the results it brings are not bad, I think. This bloodless hunting took me quite a long time, but it was worthwhile since I like this shot.
There is one more information for you. The autumn in Poland is not just a regular autumn. The colours like those on the picture are ubiquitous during the time from Sep to Nov, making Poland look like the foxy kingdom then.
I hope you enjoy the princess of polish woods :)

Photo très tendre comme j'en ai postée une moi-même, j'aime beaucoup le tendresse que l'on peut trouver chez les animaux.
Belles couleurs chaudes et naturelles, DOF extra.

Beautiful rustic red colors in the squirrel and its surroundings - which creates a real harmony in the photo. I like the pose - and its interesting you didnt use nuts to coax it to you.
