Great shot Mike!!
Looks like this little Fox Squirrel was as interested in you as you were in him. Attractive pose and wonderfully composed with beautiful natural coloration. Focus is right on the money. I love to see them with their tails curled up over their backs like this.

Hi Michael. Very cute squirrel. I love how round his head is. He's almost a cartoon. Amazing clarity and great soft colours. It's nice to see the leaves in the picture. The DOF helps there. I hope you post a few more of these. TFS Trevor

Beautiful photo Michael! Very good composition and framing, nice soft lighting and very good sharpness.
