Hello friends, the Grey Squirrel
landing on a tree (outside the frame)

1/1250s f/8.0 ISO1000
fully zoomed 50mm (35mm eq:75mm)

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. »

Hi Asbed!
Once again great timing. Very good capture.
The BG is blurred and the focusing on the squirrel is better than the last picture...in my humble opinion of course. Nice lighting.
Ciao! Vanda

Salut Asbed!
Bonne image juste à temps pour geler écureuil en sautant.Wow! je crois que tu vas devenir un expert en ce genre de phoot :))))
Bon travail, mon cher ami!Merci de le partager!

another great shot, very good performance!

Bonsoir Asbed,

Les arbres aident cadrage de l'écureuil. La prise de vue permet de voir les détails et les couleurs de l'écureuil gris de l'est. La bonne luminosité met en valeur les couleurs de l'image. Bonne soirée.


Your camera caputred the beauty of the fur pefectly. I especialy like the lighting. Nice to see. Trevor

Hi Asbed,
ha... ha... ha.... This deserves a "Oscar"....
Regards! TFS

Hi Asbed,
Incredible shot with perfect timing, exposure, sharpness and colors. Probably you should open to f/3.2 or so, to blur the busy background more - otherwise fantastic job. Bravo.
Best regards, László
