[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Sciurus carolinensis

This is for Ron Werner ... HE is going to EAT the pear quickly and efficiently. NO hoarding of this perishable commodity! 8-)

Note the pear gets all the support, while the squirrel teters on his hind legs in a sure footed balancing act.

Hope you enjoy the twinkle in his eye ... The Beastly Varmot.

Hello Michael.
These squirrels are so beautiful and you caught the cute pose and the wonderful colour perfectly. Nicely composed too. Regards Siggi

Hello Michael,
Excellent capture of this squirrel stealing a pear! I viewed your previous post of this fellow having a pear in his mouth ready to jump. I think everything about this pic is superb: composition, POV, DOF, sharp details, colors and the clean blue BG. Very well done, and thanks.

Hello Michael,
Wonderful photo of this Squirrel in this attractive pose. Fantastic sharpness and details. Strange place to eat your meal, but good for the photographer. Beautiful light and colours.

Hi Michael,very very nice and funny,great timing and perfect capture whit the best details and colors,i like it!Have a nice weekend and thanks,Luciano

Spendid photo with no competing background to the main character. Nice eye twinkle and very sharp details.
Just personal comments: clone more sky to the left to give the animal more space there, and cut off the half fence post on the right. Then flip the image horizontally so the fence leads the eye from the left to the animal to the right.
And I do not even know how to do that!

Hello Mike,
Now this is definitely a much more attractive POV, since you can see the squirrels face with an attractive twinkle in it's eye. Perfectly focused and showing great white balance and natural colors. Superb job Mike!!
