Grey Squirrel

By SoulOfNature
Good Morning to you all...firstly I must apologize for not being around much of late and clicking and running,I have tried to view your images has much has poss. been having a few health problems and haven't had chance for photography .


I managed to get out yesterday and caught this squirrel taking a snack and managed to get a close up...this is a full frame image,not been cropped at all,added a frame in PS .

@ 300mm
ISO 400

Best viewed large for extra detail if you have time.

Thanks again all,hope you are all keeping well,I look forward to getting back to normal soon........Take care xxx

A tremendous image of this nast little pest.They pass on a disease to our Reds which subsequently die. I would like to shoot one but not with a camera. You have captured it well.
