This Eastern Gray Squirrel was waiting patiently to receive his bounty of peanuts!

From Wiki:

The Eastern Gray Squirrel (Sciurus carolinensis) is a tree squirrel that is native to the eastern to midwestern United States and the eastern provinces of Canada. The species name carolinensis refers to the Carolinas, where they were first recorded by zoologists, and are still extremely common.

Hello Ange,
Cute shot of an Eastern Grey Squirrel: sharp and well composed and contrasting well against the busy BG.
I like the smile of anticipation on his face!
TFS and best wishes, Ivan

Hi Angela,
Th Eastren Gray Squirrel is sharp.
Interestiing decisive moment.

Hi Angela,
A very nice shot on this Eastern Gray Squirrel. A good exposure has rendered nice accurate colors for the cool shaded light. Sharp detail with a good DOF to have the subject and the branch he is on looking good. We have millions of them here. I'll send you as many as you want. They are over poplulated in the urban environment.

Hi Angela,
Lovely big eye and natural pose. Sunny and delightful atmosphere. Also excellent composition.

Hello Ange,
Well this is great, period, focus and composition are excellent, very well done.

Hi Angela,
squirrels are everywhere and even though I have seen them all of my life,I never get tried of them.Your little one has good colour and details,however the background is a little strong in its lighting.Have you seen Luc's pictures?He uses the same camera as you and gets the results you are looking for.Tfs.Please keep 'em coming as photos are entertaining and educational as well. Bob

Dear Angela,
I am really trying to imagine the way you took the shot. Were you under a tree or something at the time when you took this shot? Really difficult and with a squirrel.
Good colors and may be added little more contrast and colors. Nice picture
