Hello friends,
the Grey Squirrel.

1/2500s f/8.0 ISO1000
50mm (35mm eq:75mm)

from Canadian Museum of Nature website

« In Canada, most female eastern grey
squirrels have a single litter in April,
following a breeding season in late February
and early March and a gestation of around 44 days.

Most litters contain two to three young.
If the weather is favourable and there seems
to be enough food, some females will produce
a second litter in late July, although it
is uncommon in colder parts of Canada. »

Jesus! These little beasts do not ever get tired?kkkkkkkkkkk
Hello Asbed!How are you? Hope you have not very cold.
Nice action shot!TFS
Regards from,

PS:thanks for visiting my gallery!Appreciated it!

Hello Asbed,
that's a wonderful attempt in my opinion.
Good clarity and fantastic white balance.
The colors are really looking amazingly natural.
The use of f/8 here ....its working ..the background
is quite far away from the squirrel, so good separation
from the background! I wouldn't give up on the f/2.8
alternative ;) have a nice day Asbed!
