L'ECUREUIL ROUX
De la famille des Sciuridés, l’écureuil a toujours attiré la sympathie de tous, et notamment celle des enfants. Walt Disney n’a-t-il pas créé les charmants “Tic et Tac” et Tex Avery le célèbre "screwball squirrel" (casse-noisettes en français), pour notre plus grand plaisir?

Qu’il soit roux, gris, noir ou volant (on le nommera alors le: Polatoche), parlons quelques instants de ses défauts et de ses qualités:
- l’écureuil est agile, d’où l’expression "agile comme un écureuil"
- il est économe, une banque française connue a d’ailleurs emprunté son symbole comme enseigne…
- il est glouton! Une compagnie de téléphone au Canada a dû renforcer les gaines de ses câbles grignotés par ces petits farceurs!
- quant à dire…délicieux, cela n’engage que le chef cuisinier d’un restaurant select de Londres, qui sert à son menu de l’"écureuil au vin et aux champignons"! Mais que l’on se rassure, a déclaré celui-ci, il ne s’agit pas des petits écureuils de nos parcs et qui font la joie des petits Anglais

Hi JeanPaul
Phew! I must remark how the 'Babel Fish Translator' (this time) did a fine job to warp your notes out of proportion almost to perversion, but that is no fault of yours as you do the best you can with the best you have.
Your cute little squirrel is rather nice, just a pity of the bright backlight situation you had to deal with.
The composition is fine and the bottom-up angle of the shot provides an interesting POV. The colours are great and the details are nice and sharp.
Good work and TFS.
Regards
Loot

Hello Janpaul,
Funny capture.Sharpness,details,catchlight in eyes and composition are wonderful.
TFS...:-)

I like the angle from which you have shot this cute squirrel, Jeanpaul.
The russet red color on the back of the creature looks beautiful.
Yes, all of us love squirrels. In our Hindu mythology, the god whom I am named after, caressed the grey Indian squirrel on the back and the horizontal lines on the backs of these creatures are attributed to that gesture of affection!
TFS.
