Yesterday I met this small model in the park. I gave some nuts to squirrel and it allowed me to take some pictures.
I noticed that squirrels now don't look like in summer time, their fur on the back became grey and ear tufts became longer.

F 5.6
1/100 sec
ISO 400
Focal length 90 mm

Hello Svetlana,
Lovely pose in a superb central composition in this sharp portrait of a Red Squirrel. Nice autumnal BG.
Well done and thanks,
Best wishes, Ivan

Il est magnifique ila l'air tout surpris de la tête au pied, loll. Magnifiques détails et superbes couleurs.

These are very unusual looking squirrels. Not sure if we have any like it in America. If so I have not heard of them. A very nice meeting and capture.

Hi Svetlana.
I have missed this terrific picture. It is the best. Brilliant reproduction of the beautiful squirrel, amazing autumn scenery created by dry leaves and green grass. Pose of your charming model and your POV are amazing too. Bravo and my congratulations.
