Hi friends

As mostly there are many information about this mamals, so i post about the park near kingston. Hope my friends like it:

Lemoine Point Conservation Area :

Spring wildflowers are a significant feature at Lemoine Point Conservation Area.
Bordered by Lake Ontario and Collins Bay, Lemoine Point is 136 hectares of forest, field and marsh, with a spectacular waterfront. Many opportunities for recreation and nature appreciation are available in all seasons.
Lemoine Point Conservation Area was purchased by the CRCA in 1975 to preserve this significant piece of land for future generations. It is a very popular and heavily-used Conservation Area with more than 2,500 metres of shoreline on Lake Ontario. It is also the last large publicly accessible tract of wooded Lake Ontario shoreline in the region, making it of great importance both as a recreational and a natural area.
Hiking and Cross Country Skiing
11km of trails cross flat to gently rolling woodland, field and marsh. Scenic lookouts and benches are located along the trails.

Handicapped accessible trails are available from the north and south parking lots.

Picnic tables, barbecues and washrooms are available at several locations. Permits are required for group picnics and may be obtained by calling (613) 546-4228 ext 222.
A stone beach is located at the north end of the conservation area.
Wildlife Viewing and Nature Appreciation
The deciduous woods are an excellent location for spring wildflowers. Many species of resident and migratory birds can also be seen in the area.

Hi Babak,
A very sharp and crisp image!
I like so much all the details got on the animal's fur, with the contrasting white tones.
The texture on the trunk's bark is very rich and I like also the background got, so soft.
Congratulations and thanks for share it.
My best regards,

Lovely colours on the squirrel, perfectly complementing the shades of the bark.

The angle of the tree is great, works wonderfully and i like the shades of blue in the background. Very pleasant shot with super detail, well done.
