  3. Karen Crawford:

    I have never seen anything like it before. The squirrel had its paw raised and the bird had its beak wide open, it was like they were going to have a fight. Karen Crawford, 59, captured the face-off as the pair appeared to be having a row over a handful of nuts on a tree trunk. In the shot, the red squirrel is perched vertically on a tree stump with its paw in the air, as the bird sits on the other side with its beak wide open. (Credit: SWNS) Perhaps even more remarkable, Crawford admitted she did not even realize she took the photos until she got home. I thought wow when I got home and saw the picture and the reaction I have had to it has been really strong.
