While walking around Ellen Trout Zoo I saw this Mother Squirrel resting in the tree. I think she may have left the kids with a nanny while she took some well deserved time off.

I know a lot of moms who could relate to this photo. It is an amusing capture. nice sharpness and good exposure on the squirrel. It might have been tricky with that bright back light.

Hello Billy,
Just marking my critique for now, as I don't have
much time right now to make a proper one. but I'll be back later.


Hey Billy, great catch excellent detail, and good separation with the background, you've handled the light very well considering you shooting up into the canopy..Cheers Rick

Too cute! ha ha
Great moment you captured.
I have to say that a person doesn't have to be a mom to relate this level of 'tard'.

Hello Billy,
Great shot of this resting Squirrel from an unusual POV. She looks totally relaxed and unaware of you being there. Great sharpness, good colours and a fine natural background.
TFS and regards, Ulla
