Photographer's Note

I was in a graveyard in Helsinki feeding squirrels and birds. I saw a patch of wild mushrooms, dropped some nuts into them and then lay down and took some snaps when this little guy came over to fossick. My camera is only a compact, but it takes great shots, particularly close-ups.

Later I was sitting on a bench feeding a couple of other squirrels when two of them attacked me. One bit the back of my head (presumably to sidetrack me ;) and the other bit my finger where I was holding the nuts. I ended up running out of the graveyard clutching a bloody finger, with thoughts of alfred hitchcocks "the birds" swirling around in my head. Genuinely scary.

Heres some info about the squirrels:
