Vorba romanului: mandra veverita, ai grija la nuci !

Really wonderful, also the natural frame in the left, this tree, great view on the "eekhoorn" in it's fine pose.

Just perfect! POV is fantastic. Subject very high on the cute scale. OOF BG superb. Wonderful work. TFS

Beautiful composition and pose. Tack sharp, very good at such a distance. Great framing and BG. Very well done, Sochirca!

You say, classical view, no super view. in fact you have added a lens on your Olympus. Good job.
As I have the same camera I will try to find one.

Hi! Sochirca,
This character is such a poser and what a beauty he/she is. I wonder what tasty treat that is. Well done with this close up. I wonder if the RH side might need to be cropped a bit. Thank you for sharing this lovely treat!

Hi Sochirca!
Wonderfull photo. Perfect composition, excellent colors, light and details. Great work!
TFS ;-)

I really like the composition of this photo. The colours are beautifully muted. The whole thing is so complimented by the framing. How did you do that?
Thanks for sharing

Czesc!! Przepiekne ujecie. Wspaniale zdjecie!! Gratuluje!
Very goog picture!


It is a classical view. Lovely pose and good composition.
I think I may have increased saturation slightly to bring out some more of the lovely red fur!

Hello Sochirca, I cannot understand how I missed this one so long time ago. Excellent capture with a very clean background setting the squirrel off nicely. The almost b/w picture with the colours concentrated on the main subject works great here and the composition is just perfect.

Well done

Great picture Sochira...
Though sharpness is completely there..
Nice composition!
Squirrel depicted in natural environment...great.

I think this os one of your best squirrels. I like to see this animal eating. The background is smooth and has got the right colours.
Great capture!

Hello Sochirca,
A beautiful composition. The faded woody effect in the background with the brightly poissed squirrel standing out has given the photograph a very special feel.

What a wonderful image. Great detail and clarity with excellent background bokeh. I really like the composition.

This little squirrel looks like Don King, the famous boxing promoter with the combed-up hair.

Fantastic shot.
