[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is another shot of the grey squirrel at Bodesgallen Hall in Llandudno, this time he is eating rather than searching for food. Hope you enjoy.

From Wikipedia:

As the name suggests, the Eastern Gray Squirrel has predominantly gray fur but it can have a reddish color. It has a white underside and a large bushy tail. Particularly in urban situations where the risk of predation is reduced, both white- and black-colored individuals are quite often found. The melanistic form, which is almost entirely black, is predominant in certain populations and in certain geographic areas, such as in large parts of southeastern Canada. There are also genetic variations within these, including individuals with black tails and black colored squirrels with white tails. The head and body length is from 23 to 30 cm, the tail from 19 to 25 cm and the adult weight varies between 400 and 600 grams.

This is a nice profile shot of your gray squirrel. I like the lighting and the effect of the shadow in the BG to define his features.

Hi Sion,

Very nice it yours captures. And not even realize it so easy! I also had the opportunity to see this species of squirrel with my eyes in London. Very nice.
Have a good weekend,

Nice squirrel shot. Sharpness is even throughout. Maybe a tad dark.

Hello Sion,
Lovely capture this squirrel. Very nice colours and good composition.
Sharpness qand background are excellent.

Hello Sion,

Of course the best time to photograph them is when they are eating, since that is the only time they sit still for any amount of time!
The features are well recorded and the typical pose comes out well, good details in fur tail and head!

Pablo -
