Hello friends, last winter when
i did this photo i decided it
will be my photo #850 in TN !

My very first photo in TN was also
of a jumping American Red Squirrel.

1/1000s f/8.0 ISO1000
32mm (35mm eq:48mm)

from Canadian Museum of Nature website

« The American red squirrel occupies
all of the temperate, forested regions
of northern North America. An adult
weighs between 145 and 260 g (5 to 9 oz.)

The American red squirrel constructs
its nest in the branches or in cavities
of trees or stumps. In winter, it lives
on food that it diligently stored during
late summer and autumn. A single cache may
contain several hundred spruce or pine cones.

Wide distribution and diurnal habits means
this active little squirrel is very frequently
seen by humans. Its loud, rolling "Tcher-r-r"
and scolding chatter are familiar sounds in
the northern forests. The American red squirrel
packs a lot of 'attitude' into its small frame... »

Hi Asbed,

Lovely furry little squirrel with a spread eagle ascent pose. Fantastic focus in the woods makes it stand out. The eye-glint makes the compo livelier. Enjoyed it.

Bonne semaine
