Soft Black & White Image of Red Squirrel in Winter.

Winter pause –
The red squirrel closed its eyes for just a moment, paws together, fur fluffed, then resumed its search for food.
Winter is a tough time for northern animals. Some hibernate to escape its rigors, but not red squirrels.
Andersson walks every day in the forest near his home in southern Sweden, often stopping to watch the squirrels foraging in the spruce trees. Though their mainly vegetarian diet is varied, their winter survival is linked to a good crop of spruce cones, and they favour woodland with conifers.
They also store food to help see them through lean times.
On this cold, February morning, the squirrel’s demeanour encapsulated the spirit of winter, captured by Andersson using the soft-light grain of black and white.
