[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
When I opened my eyes in the morning, all was white in the street. The snow changed ordinary trees to the magic garden.
It's so great to take picture today (I thought that moment) and I closed my eyes and continue sleeping. When I got up it was about 9 o'clock. I went to the window and saw that the snow on the trees was melted. The sky was uninteresting to landscapes, so I decided to take my biggest lens and take pictures of birds in the park. I hope to show bird later, but the most interesting for me today was my favoutire squirrels.

I haven't seen them from the end of December. And when I went to the park with my husband, we worried if they are stil alive or not. We saw some thacks, but we were not sure that they are squirrel's tracks.

I stood near the big tree and watched the great tits and blue tits. And suddenly I saw a shadow on the snow. It was squirrel.

It climbed the tree and went to the birdfeeder. Somebody made it from the 5 l plastic bottle and attached to the tree trunk. The squirrel looked into the feeder...

I will continue this story soon

Hello Svetlana
I love to watch squirrels too. They are very entertaining. I just love your squirrel with the tufts of hair on their ears. These are typical squirrels feeding from a bird feeder. Well done.

Hi Svetlana

Thank you for telling us such a nice story. I'm looking forward to reading the next chapter and to looking at nice picture like the ones of that lovely squirrel. Aren't they wonderful animals?

Kind regards
