A walk in the park.
Continuing my Berlin adventures, my daughter DD, her husband and I took a lunch break in the park, sitting on a bench in the shade, eating sandwiches that we’d brought from home. It was lovely and peaceful there amongst the huge trees, despite it being a Sunday and lots of other people out and about.
As we sat there we suddenly noticed a little squirrel dart out from the bushes and scamper across to check out the rubbish bin. To my great surprise I noticed that it was red! I have never seen a red squirrel before, (the ones in my garden in Cape Town are all grey). This was fantastic!
We quickly took lots and lots of photos, determined to capture this unique animal. Most of them were blurred, as the little thing darted around so much.
Finally, Sparky the Red ran right up to us, and stopped and looked at us for a moment. That’s when my daughter got this great shot.
We offered him a piece of sandwich, but he wasn’t interested.
Having checked us out to his satisfaction, he hurried off again.
What a treat!
