Looked out the window today and saw this little chap, nicking all the sunflower kernels - I thought were prime bird food.
ISO was a bit high as it was in shade, but as I've not uploaded for a while due to moving house and having no internet I just wanted to add something for now. processed in Lightroom to mostly remove noise and crop. v2 shows him caught in the act.

The little blighters are at my sweet corn as well. Like the contortions in v2 albeit a bit noisy. Hope the move goes/went well.

Two extraordinarily beautiful and superbly captured photographs. This squirrel is quite clearly going for the low cholesterol option. Brilliant an image which I am sure will draw many crowds Jack.

Regards Nathan.

P.S. Hope you have a great weekend, must try to get back to the MNC, it has been such a ling time.

Very nice composition lovely subject.
On a personal taste, I would've liked a bit more contrast/punch as for me, it looks a bit flat.
Hope you sort out quickly with your new house and start uploading again as we all got used to Wink

cheers mate
