Look of a Lady II

By TerryMcK  
Thank you for your pleasing response to my Chaffinch feature of 16th Feb, "Look of a Lady."

Another look from a Lady, this time a female Grey Squirrel, captured last October at my local hide where she is a regular visitor. She posed perfectly still on the post, allowing me to select a slow shutter speed in less than ideal light conditions.
Some folk consider Grey Squirrels to be pests - me, I love 'em.
Large is almost lifesize!
Manual exposure F/5.6, 1/320, ISO 400, WB Daylight, 220/400mm handheld but supported on camera bag.

Hoperfully, I'll get around to catching up with you over the weekend...

An excellent image Terry, great detail and timing, I am fortunate to live in an area that supports a healthy population of Red Squirrels and no Grays, but if it were otherwise I should enjoy watching and photographing these charming little creatures just as much.
Excellent Terry. She poses well, obviously her best side. Fabulous detail.

What a marvellous frame filling shot of the grey squirrel, Terry. And no tripod - great stuff. The detail you have captured is truly excellent, and the 'pose' so attractive.
Regards, Ronnie.
