A Life Saved

My friend Judy has a heart as big as the outdoors. She devotes much of her time to helping animals who can’t help themselves. She sent me an email last week and asked if I’d like to see and possibly photograph a baby squirrel. Without hesitation I said yes!

She has had the squirrel for about a week and has been nursing him back to health from a leg injury. He appears to be mending nicely and the injured leg didn’t seem to slow him down. Once the leg heals and he’s able to fend for himself, this little guy will be slowly reintroduced back into the wild.

Shot indoors, using natural light, with my 85mm lens. For more camera information or to purchase, click on the photo.
