I arrived at the Newfoundland Memorial quite late in the day.

Any chance of a  good photo of the Caribou looking across the “Y Ravine” trenches was long gone.

Although I was well blessed by the fact that I had the environs entirely to myself.

Walking back to my car around “the loop” I saw something reddish and low to the ground.

Que?

A bird?

Nope, it was a wary Red Squirrel who raced up a tree to watch me from a safe distance.

How I lamented the absence of my SLR and 400mm lens!

In the end my little Sony achieved a better result than I’d expected.
