[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I see a lot of these guys and often they pose for me. I think because others feed them they think that's what I'm going to do as well. Anyway; they are practice shots for a photographer like me. Here you can see him eating a peanut.

Hello Trevor,

Pleasing composition of this animated red squirrel in prototypical snacking pose. With warm late winter hues and amble afternoon light illuminating the finer features of this tree rodent - it's a winner to be sure. Congrats on this effort!

Hello Trevor,
Excellent sharp detailed photo of this Red Squirrel taken from the best frontal POV. Beautiful contrasting colours. Very nice composition.

okay! yours one is better than me :)
but i feel related in happiness :):)
i don't see many of them here, in Massachusetts.. it was my first, and i loved the species. don't know what mine one was eating.. a pink/ orange tiny round fruit..
good face to face shot, Trevor.. with good light and natural colours.

Bonjour Trevor,
Agréable valorisation du sujet dans une belle attitude.
A bientôt sur TN pour de nouvelles aventures.

Hi Trevor,

What is this American doing in Canada. Better food and healthcare up there :) Kidding aside, beside Canada is North America :) Great shot, I love squirrel. They give me sense of liveliness with their quick movement and funny way they eat. Good quality photo of this one with a straight on POV.


Such fine details.
Its whiskers and its tail make this animal SOOOOO BEAUTIFUL.
And, you with your tiny camera, have that unique ability to present it MAGNIFICENTLY!!!
I too have this wild but almost tame squirrel that eats out of my hand; at times, I bring it into my home and I play with it. This one is [click on the following] ALMOST LIKE A PET.
Best and most kind regards from Calgary from Mario.
