What better way to celebrate eight years on the site than by posting an image of a red squirrel.

And feeling quite righteous as I just spent two hours working out in the gym. Now off for a relaxing bath and watch the second half of the Ireland game.

Happy 8th EPZ B'day Cheryl and a nice post to celebrate.
LARGE is best, the detail is superb.
If I may though, that green streak in the bark does add a slight distraction, difficult I know to do anything about it though.

Stewart

Delightful image. I like is pose & the way he's looking at you. I might clone the little white spot out on the fur.

Thanks all.

So Steve will not be wanting to borrow the D3 or 500mm in future I can see Tongue

Had to compress this one quite a bit as it was nearly 600k at 900 x 600!

Had not noticed the white spot, the mucky squirrel will not be appearing in future shots unless he smartens himself up. Imagine not being properly turned out for a photo session Grin

A beautiful shot. I think he's trying to look like Jedward ( Smile ) with his white tipped tail.
