"Your words are as a buzz in my ears. Let me sleep, please." (Snowy)

It is the same sort of squirrel as yesterday. You thus can you refer to the same note.

When I took this photo, because of the presence of a fly, I thought at once of this photo which Japie had taken. It is not probably the same fly. :)

I feel a little bit guilty of presenting you the same subject two times in succession. Here, it is raining for two days. It will rain even tomorrow, according to our meteorologists. I thus have no fresh photos to present you. Please excuse me for it.

But I hope all the same that you will like this one.

(I used the word "same" six times, in this short note.)

Great shot very nice bleu eye, he seems to have a passenger...
I love it
Well done

Pour une fois que le sujet prête à un titre qui en fait une histoire, c'est très réussi. L'oreille tendue et l'oeuil grand ouvert sont une invitation au silence et à l'écoute. (Ils se parlent peut-être?) Le panache en bataille sur ce fond bleu est aussi très réussi. Une photo amusante avec un excellent cadrage. Cette photo pourrait illustrer une fable que n'a pas encore écrite La Fontaine. Bravo, Luc!

Very good Luc.
High cute factor, good composition and great colours.
The little fly makes it a little extra.
Great work.

Is this squirrel dead or something ;-) ? Absolute insane, blue eye :-) I like its pose, and of course fly makes the picture :-)

Luc, do not mind if you post it twenty times. Such a nice shot needs to be posted. How did you get so close? Tack sharp details on the squirrel. Very well done.

La mosca la has puesto tú????
Maravillosa escena con la calidad necesaria.
Gran agudeza con perfecto encuadre y DOF.
Los ojos azules de esta ardilla son casi irreales.

The fly... Do you have put it you???
Wonderful scene with the necessary quality.
Great sharpness with perfect frame and DOF.
The blue eyes of this squirrel are almost unreal.

Luc, Really like this one! Blue eyes - blue sky! Great title/theme with the fly adding great interest. Superb details seen in this most excellent close-up head-shot. Great post!!

I don't think it was the same fly on the gecko. What a wild look in his eye...almost frightened looking or perhaps just neurotic.
Very clear,interesting POV.Well done.

Great close up and personal Luc, the detail is superb in some ways better than yesterdays, just love the steel blue eye's.

I would not mind if you keep repeating yourself with shots like this some more days. The blue eye looks really odd in a squirell. Fantastic, Luc.
Rainy days are very unconfortable, but the best to get fantastic flora macros and shots. Textures and lights are special, in fact a lot of my fungi shots are taking in rainy days.

Good capture. I like the eye. Very nice detaiul and a fly toi boot. Good job

Je me demande si je ne vais pas prendre la même peluche pour mon fils de 3 ans pour les fêtes de Noël, excellente profondeur de champ et la nettete, et ce regard ...Tu mérites un very very great shot
Amicalement Christophe

I am glad my tail has been left out of it this time :) The eye on this chap is absolutely beautiful and I considder this a nice fly shot too. The sharpness is superb and so is the DOF.

You can post more of this guy - I already feel like he is family (tail and all)

Thanks for posting and send us some rain too.

Superb...he does look tired. The details are excellent I think this is very very good, well done Luc.

LOL, funny note Luc! I have honestly never seen a squirrel with blue eyes, do you think it is blind? Very strange but a great capture.
