Photograph taken 25 March 2012.

I recently came across this image in my archives.  I always thought it was an interesting image and not sure why it wasn’t published back when it photographed.  The irregular light pattern was created by reflected sunlight from windows opposite the artwork.  Created by Kid Acne in 2012 the building on which this was painted has long since been demolished.

Sciurus Carolinensis

Grey Squirrel | Botanical Gardens Sheffield 2017 | © Little Bits of Sheffield | SP1010838E

The Grey Squirrel is not a native species to the UK.  After it was introduced in the 19th Century it gradually displaced and grew to out-number native Red Squirrels.  On Little Bits of Sheffield it has for one day displaced the usual less animated content and is dedicated to Victoria over on Neo Watercolour.

The photograph was taken at the Botanical Gardens on 30 March 2017.
