Study of a red squirrel, sitting on a wide snow laden branch. The animal clasps a nut in its front paws and looks down to the left from the tree. The landscape below is thick with snow, and on the far left, a hamlet of cottages amongst winter trees can be seen. Hills line the horizon and the sky above is dark and overcast; heavy with snow.
