This is a red squirrel. They are indigenous to the UK and other countries, but are currently endangered here because of the grey squirrel which is from America.

For those of you who don't know, these are loving creatures who do not damage things, whereas if a grey squirrel gets into your house it actually looks like it has been burgled, it destroys everything.

Daily Deviation

Given 2009-07-15
" The color composition is really great, what with elements of hazy bokeh simply bringing the mind to focus on the actual piece. And the timing is perfect since the face of the squirrel (kawaii!) is expressing a whole of emotions other than the "Peek a Boo"! Good timing and brilliant use of photographic techniques truly make it a funny picture in this summer. " -phoenixleo

This piece was also suggested by Rose-Rayne.

When it comes to photographing Mother Nature timing is a key element. Here you have caught this beautiful creature in a great moment. This being was on the tree to do its business but it was so curious of you that it has stopped and even hangs off from the tree a bit as if it were trying to model for you. The direction if the ears also give it an interesting characteristic, something near that of Anime.
I like how the background is out of focus so that the viewer can focus all of his or her thought to the squirrel and its curiosity. The lighting and color is not lacking either; as if I am merely looking out my living room window.
An enjoyable piece to view. :)

I don't find anything wrong to critique that you could fix, or make better. Good critique: nice clean sharpness, cute/unusual shot with the wind blowing his ears, that makes it unique, not to mention the paw curled up to his chest. nice framing, nice bokeh. If anything, I guess I could wish that the tree was bigger so that it filled the whole right side instead of the gap. But even with the gap it's fine.. :) The colours are nice and rich. I'm running out of things to say to fill up 100 words, so I will just use it up telling you that I am using it up. :D
