A Photographers & Visitors Guide & Timeless Stories

Squirrels in the Park

Just outside Kensington Palace and a little to the north, there is an intersection in the path where the squirrels like to play.   These cheeky chaps seem particularly interested in people with shopping.  They also like to play hide and seek with photographers. The other games are;  now I’m in focus and now I’m not and I’ll move just at the moment you press the shutter button.  They’re very good at it.   I took about 20 snaps, these are the only 4 worth showing.   Can’t complain though, they were only having fun and very endearing.

Just outside Kensington Palace where you can see this house.

“Alright you got me.  Now about my fee”.

I hope you enjoyed that. They always make me laugh.

    • Thank you. I can’t help laughing. Somehow they manage to look quizzical, intent and daft at the same time. 🙂

  2. You got very close to that first squirrel. He doesn’t look afraid of you at all. I’m planning to post some red squirrel photos on my blog …. as soon as I see one 🙂

    • I am almost sure I read somewhere that you are more likely to find remaining red squirrels in /near pine forests, because they can eat the tiny seed that grey squirrels can’t.

      Seems to make sense.
