hello friends, i am very happy
to show you this photo of the
small red squirrel running after
the big grey squirrel, maybe the
photo it is not perfectly composed
but just take in consideration
this photo was shot with a camera
that has a very very small sensor

this photo was shot today and
you see that in the ground
(in Montréal area) we still don't
have snow, but it is coming soon

from Canadian Museum of Nature website

« The American red squirrel occupies
all of the temperate, forested regions o
f northern North America. An adult weighs
between 145 and 260 g (5 to 9 oz.) »

from Hinterland Who's Who website

« The eastern grey squirrel is the largest
tree squirrel found in eastern Canada.
It is predominantly a nut-eating species
and its historic range coincided with t
he vast tracts of hardwood forests in
eastern North America, in particular
with oak and hickory trees. »

Ciao Asbed, fantastic panning like an abstract composition, great action scene with couple of different running squirrel, splendid light and wonderful colors, very well done my friend, have a good week end, ciao Silvio

Hello Asbed,
Almost impossible to believe! ... This is an excellent photo, which shows a race of squirrels! ... I am glad that you return to your photos "in movement".... Anyone can do it like you!. By the way, I did not know that almost big blue-gray squirrel! Nice animal!
Regards, TFS, Jesús

I love that one Asbed!! I love that wonderful shot indeed! Wow! Please do not even start talking about composition dear friend Asbed. This shot is spectacular in my every way! What a dynamic scene with perfect sense of speed and still the bodies of the two animals is well defined! Awesome stuff! Bravo! WOW!!!

Hello Asbed,
Another example of your timing and fine panning skills. This time a fine capture of a Red chasing a Grey Squirrel. Despite the busy BG both are well seen with good clarity. You used the little camera sensor to its utmost capacity.
Thanks and have a great weekend,

ha! very nice image!

Hello Asbed,
wow...what a dramatic chase. I like the blurry effect of the bckground due to panning.
An special composition, and the two are still can be identifiled well.


Hello Asbed
must be very fast for a moment,
Maximum adrenaline. an exquisite work.

Hi Asbed. impressive dynamic shot. TFS. Kind regrads,

Rebonjour Asbed,
Une image que j'avais ratée pendant mon absence de TN. On peut dire que c'est un coup de chance et en plus c'est une image très drôle. Le petit qui poursuit le grand...Autour de chez nous, je vois souvent aussi des écureuils s'amuser en se poursuivant. Image dynamique et originale.

bonjour Asbed

la netteté n'est pas la meilleure dans cette image, mais quelle jolie et interressante scene, d'après le flou des sujets, on peut facilement s'imaginer a quelle vitesse ces écureuils courent, merci pour tes photos toujours un peu speciaux
passe un bon WE

I love this shot Asbed. It's a good blur. Well done! You can see the backround is a good mixture and supports the photo well even in blur. TFS Trevor

Dear Asbed,
This is a GREAT image; we laughed soooooo much.
It is, indeed, an EXCELLENT photo.
Picasso style!!!
Loved it.
Mario from Calgary with fond greetings.

The motion shown is super. One almost figure who will win. Good slice of daily life in nature.

Bonjour Asbed,

Tu as bien capturé la course entre les deux écureuils. Le floue de l'image indique le mouvement et la vitesse des écureuils. la lumière a un bel effet sur les couleurs de l'image. La neige est maintenant arrivée avec 25cm au sol. Bonne journée.


Hallo Asbed,
a superb capture of two different squirrels, great timing, i like very much the visual panning impact
Merry Chrimast to you and your family
Ciao Maurizio
