On Monday I used this first photograph as a preview, tempter of some of the images I'd taken of Henri squirrel.
Although the focus is slightly out; I've included the picture with the nut in his/her mouth as I find it a comical. In the image of a him/her upright holding onto the tree, with a wistful look in the eyes, I can seen a slight resemblance, ignoring the big bushy tail, of a Koala Bear pose.
You may recall that on 9 February I showed you scenes of the hide that I have installed in my garden. The published photographs above of our squirrel, Henri, were taken from the hide. I will be posting images of a Blue Tit including some when it was on the same tray, as per the example here. I thought you might be interested to see how close they were to my hide viewing window. The distance to the feeder (an unwanted shower soap tray) is just under one metre – actually it's 95.4 centimetres.

I'm looking forward to more close encounters with these regulars and other, new visitors. I'll keep you updated.
On Friday I picked some oranges from our tree in the garden to have some freshly squeezed juice. The thought came to me as I drank a glass of the organic, velvet nectar for the title of a still-life photograph: Tree to Glass in Seconds. Here are two of my attempts to portray the theme.
Blue Tit photographs taken during last two weeks.
