Isle of Wight

For those wondering where I’ve been recently then I’ve been on the Isle of Wight (back when the weather was nice), we had a great family holiday in Bembridge in some glorious sunshine.

To be honest wildlife was the last thing on my mind I was having that much fun with the kids but I did take the opportunity to stick around when we passed a hide in some woodland with the opportunity to see Red Squirrels.

A lady was there who said she fed them regularly and I wasn’t disappointed, my 200mm lens was too close for the majority of the shots as it ran up the railings in the hide only a foot away! Still, despite that and the very poor light under the canopy, I did manage some photos to show you.

I especially like the first one, I love the story behind the image as the lady looks on at this animal grabbing the offered food.

I did take some landscapes too, but I’ve left those on my Facebook page rather than go off topic here. http://www.facebook.com\ChrisLovePhotography
