“I put out the pumpkins with a bit of food inside and the squirrels then pose for the best pictures.

“I always prepare compositions with food and it is always a surprise if the animals show up and mostly it turns out differently to how I planned.

“I have easy access to squirrels and birds.

“I love them both, but for me the squirrel is more attractive because of their almost human behaviour.

“They have enormous expressions and hand like and human like body movements. That makes it so easy to identify with myself.
