Hello friends, the Eastern Gray Squirrel in his jump /
flight from a tree to a man level bird / squirrel feeder.

1/4000s f/5.6 ISO3200 85mm (35mm eq:127mm).


The acrobatic eastern grey squirrel is great fun to observe
as long as its not ransacking your bird feeders or gnawing
on your windowsills! It takes little effort for homeowners to
find ways to have a mutually beneficial coexistence with the
eastern grey squirrel, as with all backyard wildlife.

Hello Asbed,
Fantastic photo of this squirrel in flight. Perfect timing. It's jumping in your direction, that's unique! Beautiful catchlight in the eye.

Hello Asbed
This Grey Squirrel reminds me of superman the way he flying through the air. Great timing, sharp detail and great colour.
