....this thieving Grey Squirrel (Sciurus carolinensis) had his eye on the bird feeders and was hoping I hadn't seen him. A full frame capture, experimenting with a 2x Mk iii TC, lent to me by a friend, using my Canon 300mm F2.8 LIS Mk ll lens. The background is our Japanese Acer shrub which is just beginning to show spring colour.

Many thanks for your great support of my last upload, with a Smilespecial thank you to Geoff(Featherfriend) and David(Craggwildlife) for the User Awards - all very much appreciated and valued Smile

A great capture, he sure looks like he is hoping he blends in with the background and you haven't spotted him...GrinGrinGrin

An excellent image of this much maligned little creature, I don't suppose he gives a jot, just doing what Squirrels do.
Lovely light and excellent sharpness.
