Excellent shot, & superb timing to catch the little fella. The exposure & focus are spot on too.

I'm just not sure that the top half of the shot is doing anything for it. Scroll the shot up to about half to one inch above the squirrel & you'll see what I mean.

There was a song we were taught in school with an apt verse.

Squirrel he's a funny little thing
carries a bushy tail
steals away the farmers corn
and he hides it on a rail

Maybe that's what he's up to. Bit early in the year if you've only just taken this though.
