[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Hi Trekkers,

I rarely posted photos of mammals, so it was time to come up with one, I guess. The Eurasian Red Squirrel (Sciurus vulgaris) is very common in Central Europe, even in parks, where they're also fed by visitors.

Photo: taken in the park of Miskolctapolca, in the summer of 2011. Manual exposure mode; PP included moderate cropping and slight sharpening selectively on the plumage.

Thanks for looking and commenting.

Hello Laszlo,
An attractive image of this beautiful Eurasian Red Squirrel as it patiently feeds. I can almost hear it chewing through bits of nut shell as it searches for the meat. I love its brightly colored coat and wonderful eye contact. You did well on the exposure, even with the challenging light you were faced with.

Hello Laszlo,
Beautiful picture of this Red Squirrel. Good details and colour. Well sharp eye too.
Thanks for sharing,
P.S - Thanks for your appreciation on my pictures :-) ......
