Hello friends here is another
photo of the Grey Squirrel with
his acrobatic plunge into the foods

I was in A (aperture) mode, ISO1000.
fully zoomed 50mm (35mm eq:75mm)
with 70% of cropping to have it closer
and specially to remove the feeder
that is at the bottom of the image.

from Canadian Museum of Nature website

« Eastern grey squirrels live in trees,
where they create two types of homes.
During the summer, they make a nest
of leaves and twigs (called a dray)
in the fork of a branch. During the winter,
they live in a tree hollow, which provides
more protection from the cold. »

Bonjour Asbed,

Les arbres cadrent bien l'écureuil. La prise de vue permet de voir les détails et les couleurs de l'écureuil gris qui plonge vers la mangeoire. La bonne luminosité rehausse les couleurs de l'image. Bonne journée.

Hi Asbed!
Another great capture of squirrel in "flight". I especially like the light, which illuminates the subject in fantastic way. The squirrel stands out against the BG and we can see its details very well.
Ciao! Vanda
