bonjour a tous.
comme je l'ecris dans le titre,il me semble bien que ce soit un mâle!!!
bon je sais,il y a beaucoup de branches,mais ce joli ecureuil m'a donné du fil a retordre et je tenais a partager avec vous.
bien que je ne regrette pas mon choix de la focale fixe de 400mm,ici un 100-400 m'aurait permis d'avoir l'animal en entier!

Hello to all.
I like the ecris in the title, it seems to me although it is a male!
I know there are a lot of branches, but this nice squirel gave me a wire twisting and I wanted to share with you.
Although I do not regret my choice of a fixed focal length 400mm, here a 100-400 m 'would have the animal in its entirety!

Hi Laurent.
Excellent title, charming squirrel and so natural surroundings. All is very nice. E specially I like your new pursuing, exciting fix 400 mm telelens. I see we'll watch many new amazing pictures taken with it. Excellent sharpness, vivid colours, impressive lighting and excellent exposure. Shot is also composed very well. My compliments.
Alexei.

Hi Laurent,

the branches are not distracting from the animal at all, but provide the typical enveronment for a squirrel. And I don't think it's a problem that the tail is cut off. Very nice and well focused picture of the rascal!
Best regards

Hello Laurent,
I think you right ;-). A bit shy hiding behind the branches, but you focused in perfectly.
Great details and the colors are wonderful.

bonjour Laurent

WOW ! superbe image par cette pose de l'écureuil,
certes il y a beaucoup de barnches mais j'aimes cela,
ça fait partie de la nature des écureils, excellent POV et cadrage,
excellent DOF, superbes netteté et détails, TFS

p.s. hier j'ai réussi une photo d'un écureil gris volant

Hi Laurent,

Nice shot, shows the little guy going about his daily activities. Nice composition and excellent sharpness.

Thanks,
John

les bonnes occasions de prendre un écureuil dans de bonnes condition sont rares, et on oubliera les nombreuses branches, en tout cas la lumière est très bien captée, les couleurs sont naturelles, et les détails excellent, le focus est parfait

Hi Laurent,
Wonderful shot and a fine perspective presented. The squirrel is trying to hide among those branches. Very impressive sharpness and details captured on its fur and I like the glint on its eye. Great illumination. Excellent POV and composition. Kudos.

Hello Laurent very nice light and warm colours, great sharpness. I think this lens is slightly sharper than the zoom, also the focus speed might have an edge. I do like the prime lens tfs rgds Necip

Hello Laurent

A lovely shot of this resting red squirrel.It looks very comfortable as it stretches out in the sunshine.
The focus and details are very good.
The fur texture and detail is terrific.

Bonjour Laurent.
Bravo pour cette photo. Même si l'écureuil n'est pas entier, je pense que vous avez probablement passé beaucoup de temps pour obtenir une image aussi nette. Pas facile de photographier les écureuils sauvages!
Le piqué est vraiment excellent.

Très adorable!! J'aime cette photo!
