Another squirrel, Aviemore

By AnnJ
Thank you to everybody who looked at my previous upload of a red squirrel. I was amazed that so many people liked it! This is another shot I took at Aviemore and wonder if it is better than my last one? It is probably best viewed large. I think I should only enter one squirrel image in my next Camera Club competition so I shall have to choose.

I remember a Camera club judge once saying he was tired of seeing images of squirrels eating nuts and birds on sticks! It made me think that there must be so many photos taken of such subjects and wondered how one could make them more memorable. I suppose some sort of unusual action/pose/light would make them more memorable but it isn't easy to do so!

Thank you so much for looking!

Not sure this is better but it's certainly very good!
A judge who is tired of seeing such images should look for something else to do.

I think this is even better than yesterday's Ann - very appealing and although a
squirrel eating a nut it has that great alert pose. Love it.

That's a lovely shot to view and enjoy.Smile
If a judge likes your image that's a bonus, if you like it that's all that matters. If you start to take shots to please others it's a slippery slope to losing interest in the hobby.

Absolutely first class image. I agree with Peter, the judge should look else where! I will never get tired of seeing reds and this is a delightful portrait of an endangered species!
