Hello friends, photo taken today.

From a man level feeder, this crazy acrobat Grey Squirrel
took these seeds by taking it by the popsicle stick and
making a jump to the tree, it only lasted a second in
what surely because it was too heavy for his little mouth,
this is the picture I succeeded.

1/4000s f/5.6 ISO1600 85mm (35mm eq:127mm)


They have a varied diet that includes acorns, hazelnuts,
fruit, buds, flowers, bark, maple sap, mushrooms, insects,
young birds and eggs. They are classic scatter hoarders:
during late summer and autumn they bury or hide small
amounts of food all around their home range for use during
the cold season. Their frenetic activity during this busy time
reduces their vigilance, and many ultimately fall beneath
the wheels of motor vehicles.

Hello Asbed,
Great action shot of this beautiful Grey Squirrel in an unusual position. Perfect sharpness and natural colors. You even managed to capture some of the seeds in mid flight. Your Nikon D5100 camera has been a real asset to you in this type of photography. Well done!!

Hi Asbed
perfect in sharpness and looks as if you had thrown it in the air!
difficult to catch the right moment.
have nice day

Hello Asbed,

You are the master of freezing the Squirrel in the air. Here again you have proved your skill.

But my friend, I think, All species are photogenic, but POV? To me not. Here I can't see its eyes; although details and colors are very beautiful. Composition plays a great role in photography. But here you couldn't do better due to the pose of the squirrel. But you know I like such natural habitat shot. So credit goes to you to show such fast moving species in the air.
Best wishes,

Hello Asbed,
Incredible catch....Very, very difficult capture in flight.....Excellent colors and amazing focus.
A masterpiece.....Thanks for sharing!
