I thought I'd return to another squirrel shot taken t'other week for the PM Magazine Challenge ... this one hasn't made the final selection though.
Not a classic pose admittedly, but again, I loved the inquisitive nature of this little fella as he peered over the fallen branch ... let me know what you think.
Was taken in a landscape orientation, but decided to crop tighter.
1/125 sec @ f/4.0, ISO 640, Hand-Held
Thanks for looking in,
Another stunning image Paul, he looks ready to jump. Wonderful colours and detail.
I like that dark bg - - seems to set of his fur - - - looks a bit like he needs a good groom though - - looks like he's just got out of bed!

LOL ... know the feeling well x
Ta too Dave, glad you like it. Right, back to the grindstone
I don't think you need a classic pose to get a good picture,here you have managed to get a superb shot of this lovely little creature
This works, and i like the fact that it isn't a classic shot. The broken branch is a little distracting, but not much you could do with that.
Bought a magazine yesterday and pored all over the squirrel images looking for your byline, wrong magazine...
Better luck today maybe.
Nice shot, away from the cutsie stylized images, just shows how they are in life.
All the very best
LOL Dougie, not out until next month my friend
Cheers all, don't disagree with you Mark about the branch, but as you say, it was there, so ...
Shows the fellah going about his industrious day. Could include it under photo-journalism Excellent focus.
I think this is a great image, I particularly like the fact that it is a different pose from the usual squirrel shots.
Wonderful capture mate, great detail too. You got a new lens?
Looks like hes doing push ups.
Cheers you lot.
Chris .. I wish, no, this was Will Cheung's [PM Editor] lens, but I am seriously looking into gettin one for myself anyway ... and maybe a converter too
Like the pose, as it's different. Broken branch, yeah well, it's there so you had to take the shot anyway.
Did you run this shot through any noise software? If you didn't, ISO 640 on the 40D looks impressive!
I prefer this to the more structured wildlife pose that is normally favoured. You seem to have caught it in the act of being a squirrel Paul as opposed to it in a pose for a shot.
Don't know if I've explained myself very well but its a very likeable picture.
Have you squirrelled away any more?
A different but effective pose. Good to see a squirrel shot that does not conform to what appears to be the squirrel shot blueprint.
I've just pressed a 'shortlist' button there without it doing what I expected?
Any ideas pls.
Nice to see a different angle of these cuties, great focus.
Martin, did run this through a NR program, but only applied a very light NR overlay here. It's pretty damn good, even at higher ISO's
Thanks everyone for your time and comments, glad to see that this composition can still get some good feedback
The central pose works - like it Paul
As with other views above, I too like this because it differs from the norm Paul.

... not a clue John, sorry !!!
Cheers Glynn and Nigel, appreciate your time guys.
Which one of the group was sneaking around under the log?
Cheryl, she's a lot smaller than her PF pic makes out
lovely and sharp, in all the right places.
well done paul.

Oh this may not be on the shortlist but wait until I see the ones that are
Nice camera work........
lol at cheryl
'Gulp'!!! @ Cheryl
Cheers 'n all Jouko.
Inquisitive it is Paul. Would love these in my garden. Ron.
Lovely capture & timing!!
Love the pose on this. The detail is stunning.
LOL - I remember my flatmates at the university looking like this, only they weren't leaning over a log!
Anyway, I really like the dark background and the details on the wood as a good complement to the squirrel.
Bloody brilliant mate, very well taken.
To be honest, it's refreshing to see a different "red" shot, this one has such character, and I love your title.
Looks ready to pounce on you for your nuts there mate
Are you and Fran coming in March ????
Just trying to chase numbers and sadly monies mate :-(
LOL, well caught that man...
Thanks guys 'n gals, grateful for your time & comments.
Dave, sent you a PM mate!!!
like the lighting and details in this - well captured.
Gets ma vote ....quality again
Cheers Rich and Chris
Looks as if he's got his eye on something.
A wonderful study of this lovely animal.
Thanks Hilary, regarding what his eye was on ... I think it was Edgars' nuts
Best of the whole series Paul!!!!
And that is saying something!
Cheers Scotty, glad you think so mate
Hehehehe - just superb.
LOL, glad you like Gaz
one of my favourite images, the detail and the colour are spot on.
love the catchlight you,ve caught in the eye and the way he,s attempting to get over the log.
the background is perfectly out of focus and the colour blends perfectly with the image.
this gets my award,
all the best
This is excellent Paul.
Lovely expression, great shot, captured beautifully.
