22 October 2018: Smile please! A red squirrel appears to be taking a photograph in a wood in the Yorkshire Dales. It was taken by wildlife photographer Les Gibbon near Hawes this weekend.
Les: "I knew there were Red Squirrels in the area so I set off with a friend John to try and find some to photograph. We didn't have any luck so we sat down for a sandwich. John put his camera on a tree root. Suddenly this little chappie came running down the tree trunk at top speed and seemed to grab the camera. I was only two feet away and grabbed my camera and took as many shots as I could. He was gone in a flash, pardon the pun. When I looked through them this one made us laugh. It was as though he was showing us how to do it. He literally turned the camera on us."
