This little red squirrel was digging it's head in the snow this afternoon and searching for a nut or seed. I was just about to snap it's picture with a face full of snow - when it decided to shake it all off.

Hi Derek
I know it is not what you planned for but the result was great. Great timing. The snow really added to the effect and super colour. It is a keeper.
Thanks for sharing
Best regards
