Hello Pierre,
what a lively capture. standing upright to pose for this nature documentation. It shows the fur and the colours of the underside.
nice sharpness and good details too.
Very well captured moment for this squirrel.


Hellow Pierre,
A neat scene well captured and nicely exposed showing the proud squirrel as it seemingly poses. Good timing to have got this shot in time, well done and TFS.

Fabulous pose taken, strait forward look on it's face - good lighting and well done on image.
