[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Hello friends, from spring 2013.

1/1250s f/7.1 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. »

Hello Asbed!
Your trademark shot, difficult surroundings but with good details and sharpness on your subject. You have captured this grey squirrel very well and well in time. From your shot it looks as if the squirrel was ready to climb up this old tree. Thanks for sharing,
Best Regards,


Bonjour Asbed
Malgré le fait qu'il soit dans l'ombre, on distingue bien le charme de cet écureuil
Une photo pas facile à faire !!
