Ha, ha, thanks all.

You'll be pleased to know that I have another 5 or 600 squirrel shots to wade my way through.

Funnily enough I prefer this one and only uploaded the posing shot because of the light on the underside of the squirrel.

Doubt it will get near the lofty heights of 195 votes though.

Lovely shot Cheryl. I'm surprised you didn't crop or clone out the stems just intruding into both the right and the left though Smile

Thought about cropping Barrie, but as it was literally taken at the same time, same squirrel as previous shot it would have been obvious.

If I were to print it then I probably would.

I could be uploading squirrel shots until next year and not repeat an image, but I won't!

Will uploaded some more cresties or woodpeckers.

Well at least it is not a robin, of which I also have plenty of material from the break in Scotland.

So just to break the squirrel monopoly, or is that monotony, I shall upload a robin next.

This is a great shot. I am always surprised at just how limited the DoF can be when using longer focal lengths, and you have used it to great effect here.

There's a queue of shots to be next years Christmas Card Grin Maybe use this one for ePZ.

Thanks all.

Really will stop posting the squirrels for a bit, but I just can't resist them, after all it was my third or fourth time hoping for squirrels in the snow, so I may have gotten a bit trigger happy when the event finally happened.

You've got your squirrel PA, Cheryl, so isn't it time to stop exploiting the poor wee beasties and move on?

OK, nice shot and all that. But still.... Wink
