Well it's my 300th post ! I can't believe how time flies ! So for the occasion, here's something different for me: A little furry friend I met a few days ago. The Eastern Chipmunk or Tamias striatus. Hope you like it ! :-)

Hi Mario,
Congratulations with your 300th upload. Soon after I joined this site, you became one of my favorite photographers. Your photos are always so beautiful and you are the master of razor sharp images. You captured another very beautiful photo of this lovely chipmunk. I like its surprised look and his pose. The details and colors wonderful. I like how the flash produced such a fine glow on its coat.

Hi Mario,

I missed so many wonderful posts of yours while I was away but I will catch up. Had to start with this wonderful Chipmunk to congratulate you on your 300th post. I'm looking forward to seeing many more. The pose, colors, details and setting of this picture are all excellent.


Bonsoir Mario,

Salut Mario,
WOW quels détails! J'aime l'ambiance que dégage cette magnifique photo. Ton petit suisse est adorable. J'aime bien sa petite patte relevée. Superbes couleurs et une netteté qui rend un bel hommage à ce petit compagnon de sorties en forêt :-)


Félicitations Mario pour cette 300ième excellente photo! Il est de toute beauté ce Tamya. Tout est parfait, les couleurs, les détails, ce bel environnement et l'exposition. J'aime bien cette pose que tu as capturée et cette parfaite utilisation du flash. Le Tamya est un de mes sujets préférés, il sont tellement beaux et photogéniques! Le Mont Saint-Hilaire en regorge mais étrangement, je ne les retrouvent pas sur mon terrain ou ailleurs sauf sur la montagne :) Merci!

A very nice shot of this little guy,It appears that you ahve used a flash in this shot, and if that is the case than you've really done an outstanding job of it! The lighting still looks quite natural! Well captured,


Hi Mario,
Great sharpness, details & perfect timing to have such result.
