Three-striped Palm Squirrel
|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|I'm trying my new Nikon D7200 with compatible lenses I have. On 10th of this month, I captured this frisky Indian Palm Squirrel sort of impulsively. It ran along the lawn and jumped on to a tree and while it was contemplating its next move from there, I aimed and pressed the shutter with whatever camera settings I already had. The image turned out to be quite dark. However at PP stage, I somehow managed to salvage the image as you see it now.|
The Indian palm squirrel or three-striped palm squirrel (Funambulus palmarum) is a species of rodent in the family Sciuridae found naturally in India and Sri Lanka. In the late 19th century, the palm squirrel was introduced to Madagascar, Réunion, Mayotte, Comoro Islands, Mauritius, Seychelles and Australia, where it has since become a minor pest. The closely related five-striped palm squirrel, F. pennantii, is found in northern India, and its range partly overlaps with this species.
