I am living almost right in the city centre of Hamburg - but even here, sometimes life can be like in a very small town. Not only because of the "village"- character of this neighborhood, but even as there are quite a lot of trees, parks and the Alster lake near by...

This morning - on a "golden October"- day, I happend to see this little squirrel sitting at the foot of the tree right in front of the house, I am living in. First I thought "whoever has left his stuffed animal here..."

I have not been lucky enough to react immediately and get the camera ready, before it could move. But it rested on the tree and posed rather nicely for my photo: 

What a nice start of a "golden October" day in Hamburg.
