[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Hello friends, the Eastern Grey Squirrel in action.

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


«Despite its name, eastern grey squirrels are highly
variable in colour. The typical colouration is a grey
back with white underparts and some yellow-brown
areas around the head, flanks and under the tail.

White animals occur rarely; the most common variety
apart from grey is black. The black form is found mainly
in northern parts of the range, mostly in eastern Canada;
the darker colour may give the animals a thermal advantage
(help keep them warmer) during winter.»

Aaaah! Yesss!! This is what i like...ahaha...magnificent pic from your archive of our friend in a spectacular jump,it's absolutely lovely and very very sharp,2 points are not enough. Have a nice evening and thanks,Luciano

快速中的移動沒有一點模糊 真是太專業的呈現

You require a great amount of patience for an action shot like this, Asbed.
You have now mastered the technique as is evident from this pin sharp action shot. Even the catch-light in the Squirrel's eye is well captured.

Ciao Asbed, great timing to capture this fantastic flyng squirrel, perfect focus, fine details, splendid sharpness and wonderful natural colors, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio

Bonjour Asbed,
La mise au point est parfaite,Bonne netteté et belles couleurs naturelles
Bonne journée

Hello Asbed,
Your trademark shot! Well captured and perfect focus on its eye. Even in ISO 4000 you achieved a good picture. But digital noise engulfed the BG. Like natural habitat but somehow to busy and difficult to concentrate on subject only.
Thanks for sharing,
Best wishes,

Bonjour Asbed,

Les arbres cadrent bien l'écureuil en vol. La prise de vue permet de voir les détails de l'écureuil gris après son saut. La bonne luminosité rehausse la beauté des couleurs. Bonne journée.
