Very well captured indeed, lovely colour and sharp bright eyes I would imagine you get very few opportunities to photograph these little creatures, you have certainly made the most of your chance.

Quote:they can catch (non native) grey squirrels a lot easier than the Reds

More power to them then Smile
Good capture. I'd consider cloning or cropping out the blade of grass Smile

@dark_lord Under normal circumstances I would definitely have removed that blade of grass. However the rules of Nature photography are very strict. Nothing added and nothing removed.

I may want to enter that shot into a nature comp in the future and its one of the upcoming competition themes in the club this year and we follow the IPF (Irish Photographic Federation) nature rules. If I had cloned it out for display here I may have forgotten and entered the edited image into a comp and can you imagine my embarrassment if it did well and I was asked to produce the RAW file ?

Lovely image and I see why you left in that blade of grass too, just in case.
Super detail, lovely catchlight and an opportunity very well taken.

Yes I realise that is a consideration Mark, depending on what you intend. Clonong out is out for some, but if a crop is allowed it would reposition the animal just off centre.
