A good title, but the image is out of focus. I am guessing auto focus has been used and a small portion to the top left of the image is sharp. With a busy scene like this auto focus can easily get confused. In this capture manual focus would have been a preferable option, although I know there is not always time to change modes. The whites of the cat are also over exposed where the camera has exposed for the foliage.

Thanks for your comment.The reason why the shot is as it is ,I was sitting in my lounge with the patio door open when I noticed the cat and squirrel, not wanting to miss getting a photo I just grabbed my bridge camera and zoomed in as they were about 30 ft away and pushed the button.

Interesting stand-off, the lack of sharpness ie out-of-focus has been caused by your use of full aperture. DoF is at a minimum with this setting and I suggest that for this sort of thing a maximum aperture would be f5.6 with maybe f8 being optimum. I am not sure what your stated FL equates to but if you took this from your patio it maybe getting towards a telephoto type of FL in need of more DoF that usual. I know it was a 'grab-shot' but judging by what I can see the out of focus spoils it.

If it is your cat on your fence I would put my money on the cat!

The fur is about to fly! The basic essence of a great shot, but the focal point is right art the left resulting in a somewhat out of focus result. It's not too bad and thus a super record - pity the squirrel was facing the wrong way.
