One more shot of this very cute mammal. During my holiday I spent more than a few hours with them and I love their expression.

With these incredibly tame squirrels I had a perfect opportunity to try out my 24-70 /f2.8 lens for wildlife photography. I was pretty surprised to find out that the depth of field at f2.8 is pretty shallow at 24mm.

Whilst enjoying my family holiday at the Canary Islands our hotel is next to a beach with a large colony of Barbary ground squirrels. Originally these squirrels come from the Western Sahara region but during the 60’s they were introduced as pets on Fuerteventura. Whilst more than a few escaped they now thrive on the island and this is mainly due to the fact that they are being fed by tourists. I am a bit torn by a double moral. At one hand I much enjoy their presence, but at the other hand they don’t belong here and their existence is much depending on tourism.

I can't get enough of these wonderful little mammals because by now I must have spent more than a few hours with them. They build their borrows in rock formations and I waited patiently for one of them to come out.
