Red Squirrel, Aviemore.

By AnnJ
We don't get any squirrels in East Lothian where we live in Scotland, so was delighted to be able to photograph them in Aviemore recently. They are really so cute and it can become quite addictive trying to take photos of them!

Thank you to those who commented and or voted for my last image of loch reflections in the Trossachs. I felt very encouraged by your remarks as I had feared the image was a bit dark and gloomy. I shall be using it as one of three to be entered in our next Camera Club competition which is getting rather close. Am considering using one of my squirrel images as well so would welcome any comments.

Many thanks for looking,
Ann.

Well, I've just written a reply to you saying we want more good pictures and you present us with this!
I think it is really good and you've even made good use of space.
Brilliant work!

A very pleasing, well composed and captured image of this beautiful Red. Both the colouring and level of detail is superb. A joy to view such a great image.

Thanks for sharing Ann

Well done capturing one of these elusive squirrels.
Beautifully perched on the old tree trunk with a perfect non distracting b/g.
Wonder if it needs some burning in on the trunk or a bit more contrast?
Trying to think like a judge!!!

Thanks Kate,

I shall try....do you mean on the left side of the trunk where it is paler?

Thanks,
Ann.
