the Wood Ducks in the bigginining of the month of may

this image was shot in RAW, ISO 400

this photo has received an image editing in Photoshop

from the Northern State Universaty website

here is 2 intersting paragraphs :

« Distribution
The primary habitat for the red squirrel is evergreen forest.
North American red squirrels are present in the northern
continental United States, and throughout the Rocky Mountains.
In South Dakota, the subspecies T.h. dakotensis is found
in the Black Hills, while the subspecies T.h. minnesota is found
on the west side of Big Stone Lake. Squirrels found in the Black Hills are lighter in color and larger than those found near Big Stone Lake.

Squirrels contribute to the health of the forest habitat.
When squirrels bury nuts and seeds and forget to come
back to get them, the forest is actually being re-seeded.
This species is harvested for fur in Canada,
even though prices are low. »

thanks for viewing and critiques

Hi Asbed,

And there's STILL snow on the ground?? This squirrel is adorable in that cute pose. He really is stretching that body of his. I love the profile as he stares at something and seems to be sniffing with his nose. Good colors and details and a nice snowy setting.


hello Asbed,
Nice capture, good sharpness and nice light, excellent composition and good point of view, lovely natural colors and good clarity.

Yes to everyone...and I am in a place where it snowed today a bit...even though we are blooming like winter..I have heard stories of your winter in Quebec and Francine has sent me images as well as you..Wonderful capture in the pose Asbed!

Hi Asbed,

A lovely pose from the squirrel and well worth posting - I certainly don't get tired of looking a good pictures, which is what this is. I'm sure spring will come to you soon enough and you'll have opportunities to get lots of wonderful shots.

Hi Asbed

What a lovely image of the Red Squirrel. The light is stunning and the curious pose is lovely. Sharp and well composed.

What a nice dedication for Rob



Elle est toute belle aussi celle ci,
j'aime bien la pose de l'écureuil, la netteté et la lumière sont excellente, très jolies couleurs et bonne compo,

I was just thinking about 'Arfer'. And that's quite normal, I suppose.
If you see Rob...my greetings to him and his family!
The image is a bit an 'Arfer' image.
Well done
