Hello friends,
The Eastern Grey Squirrel.

1/2500s f/8.0 ISO1000
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,

Of course excellent sharpness.
Thanks for sharing,

Hello Asbed,
Excellent action and quality which make up for the busy background. A very pleasing image which, I think, was not easy to get, especially at such close range. Well done.

Salut Asbed,une vrai merveille cette photo dont j'ai vu le preview sur FB,vraiment impressionats les details,un travail super! Mes felicitations et belle soiree',Luciano

Bonjour Asbed,

Les arbres aident au cadrge de l'écureuil. La prise de vue permet de voir les détails et les couleurs de l'écureuil sauteur. La bonne luminosité met en valeur les couleurs de l'image. Bonne journée.
