Hello friends, photo taken today.

The jump of the American Red Squirrel.

1/2500s f/5.6 ISO1250 85mm (35mm eq:127mm).


«Wide distribution and diurnal habits means this active
little squirrel is very frequently seen by humans. Its loud,
rolling "Tcher-r-r" and scolding chatter are familiar sounds
in the northern forests. The American red squirrel packs a
lot of 'attitude' into its small frame...»

Hi Asbed,a very fresh pic of the magic jump of this squirrel,a classic of your gallery but very very difficult to take and always lovely to watch,very sharp capture as usual! Have a nice evening and thanks,Luciano


Now that's what we call a masterpiece picture of fast moving action, Asbed.
You have obtained a pin sharp image with those camera settings and caught the Squirrel in the most attractive leaping posture. There is even catch-light in its eye.
Well done and thanks for sharing this stunning image.

Hello Asbed,
A fine looking action packed image of this flying Red Squirrel. Almost a little too close of a crop to its ear, but still a pleasing shot. The focus is very sharp displaying good detail and natural color tones. Nice eye contact with a tad bit of catchlight visible.

Bonjour Asbed,

Tu as bien capturé le saut de l'écureuil. La prise de vue permet de voir les détails de l'écureuil roux. La bonne luminosité fait ressortir les couleurs. Bonne journée.


Ciao Asbed, great capture of lovely in-flight squirrel, wonderful natural colors, fine details and splendid sharpness, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio

Hello As bed,
Another beautiful subject and story. Very well framed and perfect timing. Good details and colour. But composition doesn't look good to me. First its ear has touched the frame and the way it is going there is not much space. It happens if you keep your focus point just heart of the view finder of your camera and subject jumps/flies upwards. So I prefer to keep the focus point either right bottom or bit just right side, depending on animals activity.
Thanks for sharing,
