About the Image(s)

This squirrel was taken with a Nikon D7100 handheld at ISO 200, 300mm lens, at f/5.6, with a shutter speed of 1/640. I had never seen this before and thought it was funny. I cropped the shot and made some adjustments to lighten the shadows and darken the highlights.

Nice photo - he is a busy squirrel! Nest building? Very focused, clear details. My eyes like the lack of focus in the background because it lets me focus on the squirrel.   Posted: 08/11/2019 11:29:08

It is a busy squirrel. The catch-light in the eyes draw your attention and make the squirrel stand out. Nicely caught.   Posted: 08/13/2019 21:52:10

He sure has a mouthful. Going to have a nice nest for the babies.   Posted: 08/18/2019 09:51:32
