The life is'nt easy after such a snowstorm we had 2 weeks ago. To get some seeds under the bird feeder, this Eastern Gray Squirrel had to dig deeply into the snow.

Hello Eugene what a shot the light is very good, nice and diffused like studio. Good close composition, fine sharp detail and perfect pov. tfs rgds Necip.

Hi Eugene
I really feel for you down east, I know you've really been hammered with snow storm after snow storm this year. This poor little squirrel had his work cut out for him, I'm sure he had to go down quite a ways for a bit of bird seed. Good capture, nice colour, composition and lighting.

Hello Eugene,
What a lovely squirel. I love her:). Splendid shot. TFS and regards,

This poor little guy - I shiver just looking at him! This is a great shot, and you used the lighting to your advantage. The details are clear and the pov is astounding.

Hello Eugene,
Very nice shot, excellent composition, pov and details, good sharpness and depth of field,nice colors and light.

Hi Eugene
Fabulous shot of this Squirrel, the detail is superb, it really looks like he's blowing on his little paws to keep warm, POV couldn’t be better, exposure is spot-on, lovely work, all the best Cheers Rick :)

amazing pic, TFS Ori

Hallo Eugene
Poor little squirrel, but that life, and although it look very cold, it survived. Really impressive! Superb and a lovely shot of this cute little guy, with lots of details to appreciate. I love the big black eyes and the long whiskers. With the pose you captured in it, it looks like he/she is trying to warm itself with its paws. Interesting to see only the one fingernail visible. You have managed the exposure well, and the snow on the animal adds a special finishing touch and reality of the condition to this beautiful image. The overall presentation is excellent. Thanks for sharing.
Kind regards

Bonjour Eugene
Magnifique prise de vue, excellents détails, couleurs et attitude du sujet. Très beau travail!
Amicalement Robi

Hi Eugene,

Beautiful shot with wonderful details of this lovely squirrel.
Superb sharpness, clarity and exposure and therefore the details in the fur and snow on the head are most wonderful and perfectly visible.

Best regards and I do wish you and yours a very Happy Easter.
