[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Trying to take some pictures or birds in my garden and this cheeky squirel came from nowhere, but i do like the expression on his face.

Latin name: Sciurus carolinensis

Size: Body approximately 25cms. The tail is around 20cms.

Distribution: can be found throughout most of southern England (except the Isle of Wight), Wales, Some parts of Scotland and Northern Ireland.

Months seen: All year.

Habitat: Woodland, parks and gardens.

Food: Eats mostly nuts and seeds. The front teeth of the grey squirrel are continually growing, and to prevent them getting too long, they need to constantly nibble on something to grind them down.

Hello Matthew
You have good focus on the squirrel's face. His face does look cute - it is as it he is smiling.
Well captured
