The photo, taken by ePz member SteveMackay, is titled 'Red Squirrel' and here's why we thought it deserved to win the accolade:

This is a very well timed capture of a rare and beautiful red squirrel. It's at full stretch, leaping down from a tree, and the green shades of the blurred background really help to enhance its vivid orange colouring. 

The photographer has managed to isolate the squirrel in what was most likely quite a crowded environment, which is no mean feat. The shutter speed used is perfect, to freeze the squirrel mid-jump and create pin-sharp focus around its face, ears and paws. 

Photo of the Week winners currently receive a 64GB EVO Plus MicroSD card with SD adapter courtesy of Samsung. See all the winners of the accolade in the POTW gallery
