[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This shot was taken in Lazienkowski Park in Warsaw.

Squrrels are the animals that lives mainly in trees (their nests are called dreys), and their food is largely vegetable (especially nuts, seeds, and buds), although they occasionally eat insects.

Their habit of storing seeds helps in the dispersion of trees and other plant forms.

One of the most common and widely distributed species is the red squirrel, which ranges throughout Europe and northern Asia.

It has reddish-brown fur, which turns darker brown in winter, and grows to a length of 24 cm with a tail up to 20 cm long.

nice shot of the squirrel with its walnut, koleta! :-)
good composition and pov,
nice colors and details, although the
focus seems to be more on the bg than
on the squirrel.
well seen & captured, thor.


Nice catch! Its a beautiful animal. But abit out of focus.
And the compostion is a bit wierd. and the POV is a bit boring..
But it is a really nice pic' and note. How far away where you standing?
