I saw this fellow in Battersea park. He was collecting a lot of stuff for his nest...I was impressed with the amount he was dragging around.

Very cute. You gave me a big smile. Thanks!
P.S. I was going to suggest a vertical composition and a slgithly tighter crop, but the truth is this shot works just fine as it is.

Hi Staale
Tres beau specimen et en plus dans une tres belle pose.
Beaucoup d'expression et de vie dans ce cliche.
Merci et au revoir...JP

Hi Staale.
Once more your tremendous shot. This guy is looked perfectly. It is posing greatly. You low POV and exact DOF are so impressive as well as soft light and nice neutral and natural colour palette. My compliments and best regards.

Superbe Staale ! C'est le mot qui nous vient à la vue de cette amusant écureuil. A priori, celui-ci a découvert le coin regorgeant d'herbe verte, et il a vraiment tout l'air d'un sacré gourmand ! ;-)
Très joli cliché ; vraiment avec une belle netteté et une position parfaitement figée !
Bravoooo et merci du partage,

wowww , thanks

ROFL, Awesome capture Staale! You got him at the perfect moment! It was like he was posing for the cover of National Geographic. DOF, focus and sharpness are all great here. Well Done!

hello Staale
an other enjoyable moment from you with this splendid creature,wonterful photo output!thanks for sharing
as for your question,the herons are difficult in the approach,with the exception of night herons sometimes.

Hello Staale,

Seems like she is about to do some improvement work on the nest!
The typical pose is well recorded, showing that the red and the grey squirrel are closely related behaviour wise...
Fine focus and good details, the low point of view works well!
