    Morning all

    Well after my perseverance on Thursday night to get some nice close up shots
    of squirrels at the park near work I decided to go again last night. It was a
    similar experience with hesitance from Cyril at first but I didn't have to wait
    quite as long this time before he decided his desire for food was greater than
    his fear of this being that was so much larger than himself.

    Lovely shots. Also like that last one in particular. Amazing how trusting it is - round here they would never get that close.

    Took a while before he would come to me. had to have some patience and perseverance .. worth it in the end
     
  7. Patience is the key.
