[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
My titles origin came about because the whole time I was snapping photos of this little guy I was saying "what IS this?" honestly the way he ran I thought he was some monkey/ ?? Found him on the World Cup Golf Course in Myrtle Beach ( No I wasn't playing, I'm the golf cart driver/ caddy/ photographer / and moral support ) When the fox squirrel was a bit futher out in the course and I saw him I thought it was just a regular squirrel and he had picked up a golf ball ( because of his bright white nose ) But when he ran closer ( I do believe they get fed alot by humans!) I could see he had a white nose and he was so different to me I was a bit apprehensive on him getting too close to me at first. Eventually we made friends and he shared some crackers with me. :o)

Hi Donna,
I wonder if he is used to getting fed by the golfers? Nice capture!
Edit: Well, if I'd read the note I guess I'd know this suave and debonair Fox...(squirrel) is quite skilled at soliciting the goodies...;-)
So he talked you out of some crackers? Must have been fun.

Hi Donna,
S/he looks like waiting for a hand-out there after giving you a pose. ;)
Sharp focus and good exposure, great point of view! TFS

Hello Donna

A wonderful capture of this Fox squirrel.The pose is wonderful.The focus is sharp and the details are excellent.Great eye contact,you are being sized up by this squirrel.We don't have these critters up here.Nicely done.TFS


Hello Donna,
This fellow looks like b-i-g!
But the pose is typical squirrel, and I like his colours and pattern, wonderful white snout...
Seems like he was busy collecting cones when interrupted!

Hi Donna,

A good POV of the fox squirrel, a lot of details can be seen. The photo has a good composition and nice colors. Thanks for sharing.


Hi Donna,

He's so cute! This is a great shot considering it was taken in dull light. Great composition and you have captured him is a great post. Excellent level of detail and the colours are very natural.

Kind regards,

Hi Donna,
what a great looking creature, i have to say i've never seen or heard of one before. It must have been great to meet him! The central positioning works well here and the cones scattered around him create a very natural feel. Lovely shot.
