Drinking Red Squirrel by WNPhotography Drinking Red Squirrel by WNPhotography
A female red squirrel pauses for a drink at a pool of water.

This behaviour is not often seen, as they get the majority of their water from their food.

Talking about being at the right place at the right time, Will! Yet another brilliant shot from you, it's absolutely stunning. When I wrote my last critique, I wasn't sure you could top that shot, but God, was I wrong. This must be my new favorite shot from you.

The framing is stunning, the reflection makes it even more perfect. I also love how she continues drinking while she seems to be aware that you're around. She looks so peaceful. The dof is great, the light is great. Everything's great, haha.

I keep thinking 'right place, right time' over and over again. I love the majority of your squirrel shots, but this is, like I said above, my new favorite!

Wow my first critique anyway as we all now everyone loves animals especially squirrels cause there so cute. i love the way that this has been taken with the reflection of the water its brilliant plus this captures the inner most beauty of nature.
I just can't believe you managed to take this picture without the squirrel running away its amazing how you managed to do that. The light catches perfectly aswell making everything shine. This is very beautiful indeed with all the forest scenery with the calm water from where the squirrel is drnking from I love this and it deserves the daily devation award.

Don't think me bad but I really kind of wish I could sneak up on the squirrel and push it in : 3
