|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|During the Easter holliday I was visiting my parents and they had lots of squirrels visiting every morning so I had lots of targets to try my new camera on (I will post one for the near misses theme also :-)). Sadly enough I noticed that it is extremely difficult to take a sharp picture with the camera. I will take it to the store tomorrow and see what they say (it seems to be the usual problem with a slightly off focusing). This picture though, is one of the pictures that became quite sharp. |
As I will be posting a couple of squirrel photos the comming days I thought that I should share a couple of funny (true) stories about squirrels. I begin with the first one now.
During the mid 70s when I was a tiny dot on earth my parents had a dog. More precisely a border collie. She hated squirrels. Really hated them and it might have something to do with the summer when there was a very teasing little squirrel living close by. He/she loved to sit in the pine in our garden and tease the dog. When the dog came too close the squirrel grabed a pine cone, lined up and dropped the cone in the dog's head. This of course was followed by very angry barking, jumping and general show of displeasure, and probably a secon pine cone in the head and so on...
This guy seems to question why I stand there with a big camera pointing at him. I believe I can see an acusing frown on his face :-)

Nice image and what a great pose! Would have been perfect if the end hairs on the tail were not cut off.
Hehe :) Funny title, and a very sweet little fellow :)
Very nice detailed capture and good pose, the light on the tail is very nice, a little too closely cropped on the tail though.

Yeas I'm looking at You :)
Good composition (except cutting tail) and DOF.
Superbe photo Urban, dommage que la queue soit coupée en bas mais sinon très réussi.
Good shot, great pose. The light could have been better on its face.

Crop is a little too tight at the bottom, but this is a fantastic picture! Razorsharp details, superb colors, great pose. POV & DOF are extremely good. TFS!
