Hey there,

I must say this is probably one of the best wild animal close up I have seen in a while. The squirrel is crystal clear as with the background. The zoom in (which I assume you did) Was perfect. you can see almost all the detail of the Red Squirrel, It almost makes you want to reach out and pet him. The whole photo over all is splendid. I also enjoy the lighting in this as well, there isn't too much glare from the sun. So all in all the photo was very well captured and I hope to see more of you're wonderful work in the future!

Cheers.

Excellent shot! Undoubtably the squirrel was planning on stealing the camera.

Nice! There are many close up shots of squirrels out there, but not many taken with such a wide lens. Creates a neat perspective :)
