WOW! This is really nice. Such closeup of a usually shy animal. It looks as if it just wants you to take its picture! Very clear, detailed, and good colors. Compo is good too! THanks for sharing.

Ciao Ruta,
bellissimo questo primo piano di scoiattolo, bravo!
Benvenuto in Treknature!


Hey Ruta,
So this is a city squirrel...! Really cute guy indeed...
I think you do this portrait very well, focus spot on and presented in this well working tight framing...
Great natural colours, fine details!

Welcome in TN... Keep posting other fine images, and don't forget to have fun!

Hi Ruta,
Welcome to TN! This is a great first shot, wow! I like this impressive eye contact and details. This is very clear and sharp with excellent point of view and good composition. I like the hair ont its ears. Here in Quebec, squirrels don't have such long hair, I think it is pretty nice. Well done!

Very cute shot. Love the expression on his face.

good POV, details are sharp. What was he eating ?? you can see some dirt on his lip.

Good shot

Squirrels are very friendly and to shot them is a pleasure, sometimes the problem is that they are to close and you cannot focus on them. TFS.

Beautiful capture looks like its posing in curiousity.Well done.TFS

Bravo ! Pas facile de capturer l'image d'un écureuil d'aussi près. Je suppose que tu as un système de déclenchement à distance ?
