Amazing shots. I just wish I had the patience!

I have just seen these amazing shots of a pair of red squirrels from Formby in Merseyside. I just wish I had the patience!

Please, planning and persistence deliver results and keeps you focussed on achieving a goal.

A squirrel's life is short and to capture a fleeting glimpse of them leaping is worth the effort IMHO.

These are great images.
