[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
this squirrel was taking time out to have a snack on top of the 6ft wall.
Squirrels belong to the most successful and widespread order in the world, rodents (tree rat). One of the main differences between squirrels and most other rodents is that squirrels have a rather large, bushy tail. All rodents are gnawing animals. Squirrels have well-developed jaw muscles and chisel-like front teeth that can chew through just about anything. These front teeth are kept sharp by gnawing on hard objects such as woody plant materials, seeds and nuts. This gnawing also serves another purpose. A rodent's front teeth grow constantly, so they must be filed down or they will grow to the point where they inhibit eating and the animal will starve.

Hallo Sue,
Good light on squirrel. Sharpness is excellent.

Hi Sue,
Very interesting pose of this squirrel!
I like the way you managed to compose this image, with the animal's profile view, and the beautiful blurred background.
The only nit would be avoid the crop of the tail, but anyways is a very good picture.
Well done and thanks for share it.
My best regards,

Hi Sue

Very good details. I like the pose as this cute little guy feeds. Good catchlight in the eye. :-)
