A nice scene i could capture an hour ago in my next door park - a Red Squirrel (Sciurus vulgaris) jumping from tree to tree.

On the one hand i was lucky to look up and see actually
2 squirrels climbing around in the treetops, but on the
other not so lucky because i only had a max. of 200mm
with me which were not enough, so the focus is a little bit soft.

I thought i would show it anyway because of the flying action, hope you like it.

For more information on Squirrels please have a look here.

thanks & have a great day/evening! :-)

Hello Thorsten
quite often seen, a jumping squirrel. But I'll bet one can count the pictures of it on the fingers of one hand. And you have one.....and a nice one!
Well done,

Perfekt - was für ein toller Moment.
Und die Schärfe ist unglaublich gut - ich kann sogar einen Lichtpunkt im Auge erkennen, klasse. Ein super Schuß, da kannst Du stolz sein, Thorsten, bin neidisch, so was ist mir noch nie gelungen.
Vielen Dank

Hi Thorsten

Superb capture of the flying Squirrel, I take it that he made a successful landing, very nice POV and pose, and lovely colours too.

Hi Thorstan,

Hi Thor and really sorry for the delay.
I've been mostly out in the fild these past couple of days searching for some new animals :)

What a great moment!!! Spot-on timing and impeccable sharpness achieved here!
I also like the very good exposure you managed here as well as the charming natural colors!
Very, very well done!

Bravo and TFS

Hi Thorsten

Excellent timing capturing this lovely wee squirrel mid jump. You even managed a catchlight in the eye! Well done! :-)

Hi Thorsten,
Nice capture! Certainly a difficult shot to take, you´ve do it in the right moment. Good compo and action.

Hi Thorsten,
These animals almost belong in the circus. They can move so fast and easy. Always nice to see them jump around. Very GOOD timing of this actionshot. Very good sharpness and focus.
tfs Paula

Excellent action shot. Good sharpness as well.

That is a jump...:-)
Well done, Thorsten

Beautiful shot of squirrel in action doing what they do best... acrobatics.. lol... Lovely composition. Nice POV. Colors and detail are super, you even captured the catchlight in the eye. I particularly like the contrast of colors, the red and Yellow/green against that vivid blue sky. TFS, Mish

Hi Thor. This is a great action picture. Sharp and colourful with excellent exposure. We do not have many Red squirrels in GB because the American Grays have forced them out. These Reds are much prettier.
