[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
From her belly, I can tell this squirrel, (named Mama) is a new mother. She was more interested in food, and although she regarded me warily, she decided food was far more important than I was - a good thing.

I hope you enjoy. :-)

Hello Kathy,

Good point of view and a fine pose by your furry little friend!
Excellent details in the fur coat, and the colours are well reproduced...
An attractive composition with a fine sense of depth!

Hello Kathy
She is a cute little mother to be and good for her to place food first before fear and flight so that she can obtain all the required norishment to ensure baby is healthy and well developed. She gave you a good pose and you managed to photograph the little rodent in all her beauty. The depht of field ensured good focus with sharp details of her fur and that cute little tail. Thanks for showing.

Excellent image of this new mother Kathy,
Very sharp with wonderful detail and natural colors. Love the eye contact and pose you captured.
I never tire of watching these little bushy tails, they are always so curious and full of energy. We have them down along the river where I work, and a large percentage are jet black in color. TFS.

Excellent lively shot! The sparkling eye stills the show :) . Sharply focussed and good pov.

Hi Kathy!

Sure do I enjoy this wonderful presentation of her! Amazing details in the fur, the tail's fur could be counted one by one on this image! The moment you captured is also a nice one. TFS!

Best regards,

Hi, Kathy,

another beautiful and lovely squirrel from you : ) thanks for sharing this beauty - with great details and colours. tfs.

just want to say Hi before I take a half-year break from TN. many thanks for the encouragement, pointers and insightful notes all along. i have had a great time at TN. But I guess it's time for me to stay focused on my study and the Final Exam, which is just less than 5 months away.

take care, my dear TN friend. I will certainly miss you and other photography mentors here.
