This squirell was only at 3 feet of me, he was very scared and he didn't move, he tryed to be the more discret as possible, but I shotted him with my camera, don't be worry he is alive.
Thanks for looking

Hello Marie,
This is a very fine close capture of this cute little Squirrel. Sharp focus on the eye and lovely colours. Well done!
TFS and regards, Ulla

Hi Marie

Cute little thing you have ``cached`` here.. ! Beautiful with the light from the back. You can see he ( or see ) is scared. Amazing eyes it haves !

Hello Marie,
Ah, you know my weekness for squirrels. Wonderful shot with perfect focus on the eye. As I remarked in one of your earlier photos, IMO you have a talent to keep on the subject, while making the shot more interesting with a complex outline of branches. Another favorite!

Salut Marie,
Ton petit écureuil est adorable!! J'aime la façon dont la lumière éclaire la fourrure se qui fait bien ressortir les poils.
Excellent travail.
Lise

bonjour Marie

très belle photo en contre-jour avec d'excellents détails de son poil,
l'année dernière quand j'ai commencé à photographier les écureuils
j'ai vu que face au danger ils se tenaient mimétiques
et ne bougés pas du tout, c'est ce qu'il est entrain de faire
dans ta photo et que tu nous explique dans tes notes

Hello Marie,
a nice portrait of this scared squirrel.
+++ The POV is just excellent and you've composed this photo very well.
It's very sharp and there is fine detail in the fur.
I love the pose with one of its hands scrunched into a small fist.
--- There is some OE on the left side but I can see the threat of UE if you had notched the exposure down so I think you've done a pretty good job at it :)
Great photo Marie.
Well done,
Joe

Bonjour Marie, excellente photo avec de très bonnes couleurs naturelle et un magnifique lumière, très bonne netteté avec de très beaux détails dans le pelage, bravo pour cette très belle contribution

Salut Marie,
Cest petits «sacripants» ne sont pas toujours faciles à approcher... Bravo pour l'avoir fait d'aussi près! En plus ils ont le don de se placer pour être, à la fois, à l'ombre et au soleil... comme le tien! cependant la lumière est excellente et on y voit bien tous les détails! ALORS BRAVO POUR CETTE CHARMANTE PHOTO :-)

Hi Marie, this is a very cute little Squirrel, he looks a little our Red Squirrels but with sorter coat. Nice catch and pov showing his eyes and bushy tails. I like the light and colours, detail and sharpness, well focused and a great composition.

mignon comme tout :) superbe photo
il y a cependant un léger voile qu'un soupçon de contraste en plus ferait disparaître

Lovely image with the back-lit tail. I must look at the squirrels we have to see if they have the white area round their eyes like this one - I think that's unusual for our area.

Ti bonhomme, il a ses petites pattes toutes recroquevillées.Merci pour cette jolie photo bien lumineuse et nette malgré une exposition pas facile.
C'est adorable!

What a marvellous and lovely capture! He is so beautiful and so amusing trying to go unnoticed! Excellent sharpness and very beautiful framing and composition. I like very much the sunlight upon his furr.
Bravo!!

Salut Marie,
Je l'ai manqué celle là! Ils sont tellement drôles. Ils pensent se camoufler en ne bougeant pas. C'est une photo très cute et bien réalisée. Comment faire autrement avec de si beaux petits modèles? J'aime bien la lumière sur sa queue! Bravo!
Claudine

Encantadora captura con un enfoque milimétrico y un gran control de la luz. Enhorabuena !!

Hallo Marie
I can clearly see why you titled this photo "Scared squirrel”. The small ears are pulled in against its head, and it seems as if it is holding on for dear life on the branch. He/she surely have a worried look on its face, but even so this is still such a petite and tiny animal. I just love the olive shaped eye, circled with white. The white belly is also a great attraction but what I like the most is the large, long whiskers, the tiny nose the mouse shaped face and last but not the least that beautiful thick tail. Thanks for sharing. Have an enjoyable weekend.
Kind regards
Anna
