hi Doug,
excellente image, originale et très nette. La lumière est bien équilibrée, bravo.


Nice timing Doug!

Don't know if this guy is going to make it! Beautiful detail and colours but the shadow areas are very dark due to that bright sun other than that it is a superb capture.


This is a great shot..... Nice contrast between fore and background

Hi Doug,
Squirrels are great fun to watch, especially when they get up to antics like this. A good image, great exposure given the strong light from the right. Good detail and textures in the fur and light in the eye is important I think. Good DOF to retain all the detail where necessary and defocus the BG well. Nice image.

Fab Doug! This squirrel is far more acrobatic than mine. Great shot.
