[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Squirrels belong to a large family of small or medium-sized rodents called the Sciuridae.
They are generally small animals, ranging in size from the African pygmy squirrel, at 7–10 cm in length, and just 10 g in weight, to the Alpine marmot, which is 53–73 cm long, and weighs from 5 to 8 kg. Squirrels typically have slender bodies with bushy tails and large eyes. Their fur is generally soft and silky, although much thicker in some species than others. The color of squirrels is highly variable between – and often even within – species.

Good Morning Alin,
Greetings from South Africa.I believe taking pictures of Squirrels is a real challenge.It is always in motion and does not stand still for long. If I need to submit my critiques for this Photo, I wold give you an advice when you crop the picture, place the main subject of center.In that case it will look more interesting. Avoid any destructive subjects behind it or use wider aperture if you can.
Have a nice day and Keep up the good work.

Jolie photo de ce petit écureuil qui ressort bien avec le bleu du ciel. Merci. Rudy
