Hello Pierre,
The other day a squirrel tried to take the food from one of my magpies, but I don't think the furry fellow ever will do that again! He was chased over the lawn and by instinct he sought the safety in an apple tree... No problem for the magpie of course, who picked the little fellow until he run for the nearest woods!
Nice light and a fine pose from your furry friend!

It's always a bit of a challenge when your subject is not in the light ut the bg is. But since you shot this on film, and there's probably more latitude, it works OK. You might try playing with the curves a bit to see if you can bring him out a bit more, though.

Hi Pierre,
He looks like hes doing a balance act on that teenie limb! :o)
Great shot! TFS

Salut Pierre,
C'est plutôt rare de voir un écureuil dans un saule! (ou ce qui me semble en être un)...
Pas facile de prendre un cliché à contre-jour mais tu t'en est bien tiré :-)

Salut Pierre, pas facile de saisir un si petit animal. La composition est bien mais le focus a été fait sur l'arbre en arrière plan, l'écureuil est flou. Bel effort quand même.

Hello Pierre

I see from the date that this is an old photo.The transfer was fairly good.The shot has very nice back light and the greens are rich and well saturated.I like the pose of the squirrel,it looks like it is resting on it's paws.TFS
