[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
One lovely afternoon, I was on a casual stroll. Anticipating some frenetic activity from squirrels, I had taken my camera along. I did shoot a few. But this one caught my attention the most. This guy kept digging at the mulch at the bottom of the trees and peeked into his burrowed hole. Was he hiding some nuts? Or was he searching some nuts that he had hidden earlier? :-) I could not figure that out.

For some reason, the exif data got lost. F length is 270mm, ISO is 200.

Hello Gaj,
I like the natural color and good detail you managed to capture in this imsge. You also caught that tiny sparkle in his eye which always adds to a photos attractiveness. Nicely shown!!

Hi Gaj,
Very natural colour you captured, also the curiosity of the Squirrel. Penetrating lights from the tree leafs added dimension. Thank you
