Excellent shot! Details and focus are sharp. Colors are great and composition is very nice. Excellent pose aswell. I like this shot. Too bad numbers in Britain have decreased because of the introduction of the grey squirrel. I like the red squirrel a lot more!

Bonsoir Dorota,

Excellente composition,j'aime bien la pose de l'écureuil sur ce lit de feuille morte. L'environnement s'harmonise bien avec le sujet et en fait une belle composition.

Merci pour l'envoie!

Hello Dorota,
That is a funny fellow, squirrels are always such great photo objects!
I like his attentive expression here, I'm not quite sure if he is happy to be photographed or if he expects something to eat...
A well composed image with goods details!
