Hello luciano,
The butterflies may be gone for the season, but I see you managed to find this beautiful Grey Squirrel instead. Wonderful clarity and plenty of detail visible. In typical squirrel fashion it carries its tail curled up over its back. Nice eye contact and lovely natural colors. Well done!!

Hello Luciano,
What a lovely picture and nice animal.

Lovely capture, Luciano!

While it is very cute, we should remember that this is an invasive species that originates in the US, and is taking over the habitat from the local species.

Will post the same from the US.

Have a pleasant evening,


Ciao Luciano, ma che carino, beccato inuna posa deliziosa, gran ritratto di questa graziosa creatura,, bravissimo, ciao Silvio

Hi Luciano,
It's always good to show something else sometimes, than our main subject - and your talent's also obvious here. Great composition and exposure, with good sharpness. Fine shot. About the species, I never saw this in the wild, although it's an invasive one in Ireland also.
Kind regards, László

Bonjour Luciano,

Le sujet est bien cadré. La prise de vue permet de voir les détails de l'écureuil grisqui semble poser pour le photographe. La bonne luminosité fait ressortir la beauté des couleurs. Bonne journée.
