Taken outside my apartment. This squirrel has been preparing for winter since we had our first cool weather a few weeks ago. there has been enough said about squirrels on this site, so I will spare you that detail. Enjoy!

Hola Billy. Very nice photo You have here. I must say that it is "Exeent" Great work Billy. I like it a lot. Luis52.

Hi Billy,
what a nice meeting. Several minutes ago, I uploaded a post of Sciurus vulgaris - Red Squirrel and I noted shortly also about American Grey Squirrel. So two squirrel shots fallowed each other.
This is very nice capture. Nice details and sharpness. Composition, POV, looking on its face, action, eye contact also very nice. thanks for sharing. Best wishes

Very nice shot! great timing!

Hi Billy,
Very nice shot, squirrels are so cute.
I like the expression on this face and pose of your model.
Maybe there is some noise in the picture but that is not so bad. Good focus and shaprness and great autumn colours.

Magic shot mate, love the detail in this little fellow even down to the glint in his eye, nicely placed in the frame to, cheers Rick :)

Hi Billy.
Amazing scene and perfect its reproduction. Despite the bad light condition you managed to create a very colourful, perfectly exposed and detailed shot. Excellent POV, framing and composition, nicely selected DOf and nice BG. Bravo and TFS.

Bonjour Billy
Très belle prise, beau candidat, belle attitude,
une réussite.
Amicalement Robi

Hallo Billy
Such a beautiful capture of the squirrel from the front. A lovely close up filled with a variety of features and details. I just love the big eyes, the long whiskers, the ears standing up straight, the massive claws and the most spectacular the thick tail, and don't forget the nuts. A very special and lively photo. Thanks for sharing.
Kind regards
