Great folds of wood, the neutral colour of which harmonises nicely with the background and allows the colour of the squirrel to really show. It's an inquisitive pose so characteristic of the reds and your have the eye and head fur so sharp yet with a great DoF control to blur any distractions.

Great image Sylvia. The log has great foreground interest with the lines and curves. The squirrel looking at the camera and super background too. Fantastic work in what looks like very dark conditions, looking at the EXIF info. SmileSmile
