[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I was passing through a natural park and saw these two friends playing around, they were at least 100 feet up in the air so I did not have a good angle and as such there is a bit of over exposure on the leg of the animal.

Hi Ros,

You did well with this one, sharp, well exposed.
C.C. I would go with the horizontal shot to have the tail in composition, just an opinion. :) :)
Excellent work though.


Great capture Ros,
It looks like the nearer squirrel is being pushed off by the other one. Great POV and good clear detail. Good colours and exposure.
Thanks for posting, have a good weekend.

Hi Ros,
this is so lovely.
I like this animals so much, you made a perfect shot with very good sharpness.
Thanks a lot

Lol, lots of awwwww cute factor in this. The burned area would be more or less fixable in Photoshop using a soft clone brush with a very low opacity from an area with a similar lie of fur, just to give it a touch of colour under the highlights.

Salut Rosanna.
Je vais écrire en français au cas où!
Bonne composition. Le peu de surexposition ne me dérange pas. J'aurais peut-être laissé davantage d'espace devant l'écureuil qui regarde vers le bas et j'aurais sans doute laissé sa queue au complet si cela avait été possible, bien sûr!
Le titre est accrocheur. C'est la première chose qu'on remarque sous la vignette dans la gallerie. Il est donc assez important pour susciter la curiosité des gens.
Dans l'ensemble une bonne photo. Le regard de l'écureuil qui regarde directement l'objectif vaut le détour.
Nos écureuils sont apprécier dans le monde entier bien que pour nous ils soient si communs.
Bravo et bonne continuation!


Great shot!
Very good details and nice poses.

Hello Rosana,

It's a nice picture indeed. I think you should have tried to keep the tail in the composition and I agree with Miles that the burnt area could have easily been fixed in PS. I would have used the burn-tool, but maybe a little cloning would have done the job just aswell. The details are very good. TFS!


Hello Ros

Great timing. Funny shot. It he holding or pushing? Good sharp details, excellent catchlight in the eyes. Well done. Thanks.

Very cute "Bun-huggin'" moment you've captured Ros! I think it's composed well with great detail and sharpness..Well done.

What a nice capture, Ros! Good details too. I love it. Nice work!

Very cute to see the two squirels together like this. Nice capture even if so high up in the tree. I guess you zoomed in to get this so well. Maybe choose a landscape composition to be able to include the missing part of the tail. Overall though, a really nice job. Keep up the good work. Nature shots are very challenging. I try too sometimes.

Un grand bravo pour la composition. Ces deux écureuils sont vraiment touchants. Quant à la photo, il fallait être là au bon moment....C'est souvent la clé d'une photo réussie.



Great shot too bad he didn't have his tail up straight but it was either that or fall .Nice detail and sharpness I wonder is he really trying to keep his friend from falling or is he trying to push him , look at the glint in his eye. ! jajajaja very well done.

Amazing capture Rosana! So this is what Mont Royal looks like in the sunshine. Are they playing around or ???

Great meeting you in Montreal, my friend!
