Hello friends, the flying Eastern Gray Squirrel .

1/2000s f/7.1 ISO3200 85mm (35mm eq:127mm).


Eastern grey squirrels live in trees, where they create
two types of homes. During the summer, they make a
nest of leaves and twigs (called a dray) in the fork of
a branch. During the winter, they live in a tree hollow,
which provides more protection from the cold.

You have become what I feel, is a professional of the highest degree in capturing birds and even mammals and rodents, in the state of flying. Your images borderline on the best done in this area.

Hello Asbed,
Awesome action shot of this beautiful Gray Squirrel. What I find most interesting is it's unusual silver white under color. I have seen tons of grey squirrel, but this little beauty is simply gorgeous and very unique looking. Pin sharp focus displaying much detail. Wonderful exposure against a challenging BG with intense lighting.

Hi Asbed,
Classical your photos. Nice natural colours with sharpness details
and Of course very good moment captured. Unfortunately ISO 3200 = too much digital noise.
Regards Jiri.

Hello Asbed,
Another great beautiful shot of a flying squirrel. Great sharpness in beautiful natural colors. The background is bit grainy. Fantastic timing.

great jump, TFS Ori

Hello Asbed,
Another excellent freezing squirrel photograph! Now I can see why you like horizontal framing which you have mentioned in your 'Reply'. Outstanding details with natural color. Great work......
Thanks for sharing,
Best wishes,
