A sterling capture of this cute Squirrel you shot on the last day of the previous year, Smitha.
Very adorable posture captured well in back-lit conditions.
We wish you and your family a Happy New Year!
600mm VR wow, that must be super heavy!
Good capture of the squirrel with sharpness and bokeh blur in this nice resolution product of D3. Very nice color tone.
I like the composition of this natural diagonal laid out nicely for you by the squirrel climbing up that wood.
Happy 2009 to you.
p/s I see that you are also on TE but not active for a bit.

Thank you for the good wishes and for this fine photo. The image is very nice showing sharply this nice animal. You have chosen a fine POV showing it so well. There is a fine contrast between the fur colors and the tree trunk it is sitting on. The green leaves bring more life to the image.
Thank you for sharing and I wish you and your family a Happy New Year,

Hi dear Smitha
Looks like this little guy has no worries in live.
The season has provided in all its needs. The sun is shining and its friends are near.
Now it has even become a star on TrekNature.
The future is rosy and so is my wish for you too.
Thanks for the good wishes for 2009. The same to you, Anil, Renu & Meera and the rest of your loved ones as well.
Well done and TFS

This image is wonderful! The lighting and your positioning is perfect. The depth of field is right and allowing us to focus on the cute little squirrel without background distractions. An image that in my opinion have a high cuteness factor, because of its charming subject. Thanks for the lovely poem with meaningfull words full of kindness and warmth. Thanks for all your valuable contributions from your side to the site.

A very suitable shot to go with your kind and poetic New Year wishes and my feelings are the same to you and Anil.

I like this new year card. So beautiful which is a close cousin of the plaintain squirrel. The pose is stunning on that dead wood against a pleasing silenced background. The green leaves add perspective to the frame.
Smitha a month has vanished so fast and it took me so long to view this beautiful pic of yours. Nice to note that you have started your new year 2009 with a beautiful note. TFS. Best wishes. This isn't an easy shot. Very difficult to capture a squirrel that's sitting calm n still..I have always found them wriggling on a coconut tree back in my hometown..Restless and playful as they are..But then they must have calmed down to give a nice pose coz Smitha was there...Keep shooting and keep on posting more and more.
