Hello friends, Eastern Grey Squirrel's touchdown.

1/4000s f/5.6 ISO3200 85mm (35mm eq:127mm).


« Unique characteristics

If necessary, a squirrel can lose its tail sheath and some vertebrae,
or bones in its back, to escape a predator’s grasp. It is not uncommon
to see an eastern grey squirrel with only a partial tail. »

great jump, greetings Ori

Bonsoir Asbed,

Tu as bien capturé l'action de l'écureuil. La prise de vue permet de voir les détailsde l'écureuil. La bonne luminosité rehausse les couleurs de l'image. Bonne soirée.

Hello Asbed,
A cute action shot of this acrobatic Grey Squirrel. Focus is sharp and color tones appear natural. Just a tad bit of grain in the BG, but this can easily be removed. I think Grey Squirrels have such beautiful fur and this one is no exception.
I too have seen many squirrels with just a stub for a tail.

Belo salto capturado!

Hello Asbed,
Nice to see this your trademark shot of Squirrel. Sharp and well detailed, showing natural habitat.
Thanks for showing,

Ciao Asbed, great capture of fantastic flying squirrel, wonderful colors, fine details and splendid sharpness, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio

Hi Asbed,
Your squirrel series is unbelievable. This is again a great piece, however I could imagine a vertical frame, IMHO that's more powerful for this scene. I hope you return to TN soon as I saw your beautiful new posts in the "TN-artists" fb-group.
Kind regards from Ireland, László
