Something a bit different. These pictures were taken when I was in London in December 2011. I’ll post different sets of my favourite photos from around Australia, the UK and New Zealand as I think of things I like. I know squirrels are generally treated as rodents in London, but we don’t have them at all in Australia, so I was pretty darn excited when I first saw one in St James’s Park. I took a few pictures of squirrels, but these two are by far my best.
The top one is in the grounds of Kensington Palace just outside the Orangey. The squirrel is looking riiiiiiiiiiight at the camera and looks to be modelling for me.
The second is in Green Park. There’s not really any way of putting it other than yes, a squirrel climbed up my leg. It was about 9:30 in the morning and there was no one else around. I didn’t know whether to scream or laugh, so I took a picture. I was so glad it turned out.
