Ground squirrel having lunch. I find these squirrels absolute adorable. This one was snapped in a camp in the Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park so it was quite used to people.

Nice capture of this little guy. He seems less furry than some of these, maybe lives in hotter place? Your photo captures what seems to be the personality of this squirrel weel. TFS.

Hi :)
Very nice squirrel:) it`s a pitty that you framed it too much. In my opinion it should be more space in photo. Anyway the idea was great. Sharpness and colours very good.
Well done:)

Incredibly cute photo of this little squirrel. Great sharpness and POV. Thanks for sharing!


Excellent detail and lighting. Great pose and the POV is very good.

Well done

What a nice and interesting squirrel that you have well captured ! The pose and quality are great. Congratulations Edwin and thanks for sharing.

A very well composed and sharp image of the Ground Squirrel. It offers great detail and the BG is sufficiently uncluttered to increase the sharpness of the subject. Well Done. Sheriff


Very wonderful shot!!!
Very good framed!
