My dad gave me an oak sapling in a pot that he'd germinated from an acorn while he was experimenting with vernalisation. (Google it!) Some years later, to see a squirrel hanging in its branches, and birds and moths grubbing about among its leaves, it felt complete.

The moth shown is an elephant hawk moth.

Some people don't like grey squirrels because they're an invasive species. They're here now and are not going away, so persecuting them won't make any difference. Enjoy their beauty, their acrobatics, and the fact they are a new and excellent food source for many of the UK's predators.

A limited edition handmade drypoint, hand tinted with watercolour, size 40 x 30cm.
