This cute little squirrel I captured in Mannheim/ Germany, where there is a big park, called "Luisenpark" Many visitors have nuts in their pockets for the squirrels. I just captured this squirrel, as it was begging for nuts in front of a lady.
Taken with the Canon 10 D and 400mm lens.

Hello Rose,

Lovely furdetail, well exposed, great catchlight and good pose. Crop is a little bit too tight imo (you almost cut his ears). Still, this is a lovely picture. :) Well done & TFS!


Classic pose, well captured and well composed.
Very attractive post, well done.

A wonderful capture, Rose! I have never seen a squirrel with such long hair on the ears. It makes it so incredibly cute!

Great focus and POV.

Well done.

This is such a cute image, those ears are incredible!
Image could probably have been a touch lighter, but it isn't a problem.
Well done and thanks for posting.

Hallo, das süße Eichhörnchen will eine Nuß - und ich will auch mal so viel Glück haben, so ein tolles spontanes Photo machen zu können.
Wirklich perfekt, die Augen leuchten, das Licht ist super, das Tier so schön scharf, der verschwommene Hintergrund ist super, weil er nicht vom eigentlichen ablenkt.
Super Photo, Glückwunsch.
Viele Grüße - Sabine - wishnugaruda

Hello Rose!

Nice shot even on the dark site, but I guess this was the quality of light. Good sharpness and details. Bravo!

Excellent capture and well done on the composition.

IMO, maybe more room on the left would complete the composition. he's looking left and find that side somewhat tight.

Well captured though.


Hello Rose,

very nice captured. Looks as if it had a shower and a haircut. If he could talk he would say: Look in my eyes, Rose.

Grüsse nach Heppenheim,

Great composition with his full ears and tail in view. Very sharp and full of personality for TN to see. WWell done Rose.
