[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This little guy was standing on the footbridge at Nevada Falls. I couldn't resist a quick photo. I chose to crop out a part of his tail because it was up against a metal bar on the bridge.
Sciurus griseus or western gray squirrel is most commonly found in California. It is a ground arboreal rodent. It's nickname is the lundy squirrel. "Western gray squirrels eat berries, nuts, a variety of seeds, and the eggs of small birds", (wikipedia).

Hi Karen,a very nice capture despite the difficult backlight,you manage very very well the exposure! Great details and nice position too.Have a nice week and thanks,Luciano

Hi Karen,

cute shot of this squirrel, very close up with good details. I don't mind the crop of the tail, However like would have a little more room to the left so it doesn't feel so cramp in the box here. The rest of the image is good with nice details and texture of the fur. I love seeing them run across the trail often and sometime look at us to see if we the type to feed them, to their disappointment. Though if we stop for lunch, there's always some crumps.
