Snowy IV: a portrait

I took this one last year, because I wanted to write last year. ;-)
It was still other one of these cloudy days and the temperature played around -10 C.
I believe that you already know Snowy. It is the fourth time I present him to you. In fact, I do not believe whether it is the same squirrel. I counted three with the same white coat in the park near to me.
I ask you of you refer to my previous notes for more information.

Your words are as a buzz in my ears
At your marks! Ready! Go! Japie Go!

I hope you like him.
Again, I wish you a Great Year 2005.

Luc, this is detailed and well composed. Excelent shot of the squirel.
Happy New Year.


Bien content de vous voir de retour avec ce petit écureuil. Ils sont tous vraiment craquants! C'est une très belle série, et on ne se lasse pas de voir leurs mimiques. Cette façon de regarder en face est marrante, et les gouttes de neige sur le poil ajoutent à son charme. A vous aussi, une heureuse année 2005.

Très beau portrait d'un animal plutôt rare. Je n'ai jamais vu d'écureuil blanc. Son regard et la pose sont impressionnantes. Tu as su saisir le bon moment...encore une fois. J'ai vu les autres: ça te fait une belle série.
Bravo Luc!

superbe portrait !
ce petit rongeur est adorable, les details sont corrects et la composition est vraiment reussie.
good job !

This little guy just makes you smile. Nice clear shot, great compostition and color. Well done. I hope to learn how to take a close-up soon.

good new year to you Luc,
You send us a great portrait, good taken and with great details, I like the dropps on the hair. The sharpnes is good and that he is looking in the camera made the shot, very good job

Luc, your images of the squirrels are priceless. This has to be a favourite. The waterdrops on that cute face are fantastic. Did you hand him a towel? 10 out of 10!

A soggy snowy still looks cute, good capture. How much are you having to pay him now to pose, as he must consider himself a proffional model by now ;0)))))#

Great deatil and the subject. Very nice post. Welcome back

The three of them are trying to confuse you - try painting them different colors, then you will know :)

The sharpness here is superb and I really like these close encouters with the Snowy and the rest.

Very well done and thanks for posting

Very very well managed that BG Luc. You got a perfect silouete and the similar colours and difficult light made this stuff very difficult, I am surprised with this result. Exfcellent pose, they seem to be your friends. I am sure you must be temptating them with some irresistible dish to get them so well :-D

Excellent picture !! The color is well balanced, the details of the squirrel are well rendered. But I am wondering if the picture wold have been even better if we could remove with Photoshop the branches behind, that disttract us a little bit ?

Fantastic shot! I really like the series of canadian mammales!
The small drops of water on the fur of this small animals are really funny!

Bonjour Luc,
Beaucoup, beaucoup de belles photos et celle ci me fait craquer, comme je le dit souvent une photo vaut mille mots....
Merci beaucoup
