[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Hi TN fellows; I am posting here after a gap of 2 months. I was busy with my office work.
My today's shot shows an Indian palm squirrel (Funambulus palmarum) eating a chunk of salted peanut that i put under an old araucaria tree. I took some 15, 20 shots as these little creatures forgot my presence when offered peanuts. I took this shot from 15 to 18 feet with my camera almost put on ground. The shot is not complete with feet and tail missing; I did it intentionally to achieve details on those keen little eyes and cute little hands. Its long tail was not fitting well in the frame. Vertically it is a complete shot. I cropped the original shot laterally from left side. I will post the complete shots in coming days.
Hope you will like my shot,
Best Regards...

Hello Akbar,
Amazing clarity, focus and sharp details. Nice little fellow. Splendid natural colors. Excellent capture of a very interesting squirrel.

The light and the BG creates a beautiful atmosphere Asif. Also like your choice of POV to show this pose. Would love to see how this one looks with the legs in the frame.
