This one is for Luciano. This is the Grey Squirrel, this time in its country of origin. The picture was taken at the University of Minnesota Arboretum. I used my new Nikon P900 which as a great optical zoom.

These squirrels have been introduced to Europe and endanger the local species.

Hello Ishi,
A neat shot of this beautiful Grey Squirrel as it feeds on walnuts. From the looks of the large pile of shells it has found a bountiful tree. The focus is sharp while the colors are well saturated and natural. Great eye contact with a bit of catchlight visible.
The work shop is a bit soft on detail, but still an enjoyable image to view.

What a lovely capture. Nice squirrel. Details and composition are excellent.

hallo ishi
very good picture with nice details and lovely naturel colours
thanks gr lou

Hi Ishi,
Great repost to Luciano's squirrel image. Nice capture while the animal tries to eat. WS photo isn't sharp, however, that's why it isn't the main post... This species is invasive in Ireland also, where I live, but I've never detected it yet in the wild. Thanks for sharing.
Kind regards, László
