[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
For a change to a brightly lit atmosphere.

Squirrels come and go around my house in Bangkok and never get a good picture of one. Either because of my skill or their fast moving and ever cautious instinct. This one stay still in this up-side-down position long enough for me to get a rather decent picture.

For the tree
Family: Bignoniaceae
Genus: Jacaranda
Species: filicifolia
This tree is native of South America.

Hi Jitti,
Not your usual colourful insects but just as beautiful a posting. Try feeding them some nuts in a chosen spot so you would have them in the conditions you require.

Hello Jitti, nice shot of the squirrel, it seems to be bigger than europenan ones ?
Great light on its eye and well done because they're really fast!


Hello Jitti,
beautiful animal, I have many squirrels in my area but they look different, the ones here in South Africa do not have the black coat.
Very nice, TFS,

Hi JC,
Good action captured here! Or did he stop to pose for you?
Good details in the furry little guy, nice capture of his eye and nose...
Well framed setting!

Hi Jetti
Superbe prise de cet écureuil.Ton focus est parfait. L'éclairage sur l'écureuil est très bon car on peut voir les détails.
Merci Et au revoir...JP

I have to agree, I saw many squirrels on my recent Singapore_Thailand holiday; always too quick to get a decent shot.
Haven't seen this species before.
Great shot for 1/60 sec. Wonderful sharpness.

Love both the subjects, the tree & the creature.
Good notes on the tree.
Excellent clarity, focusing. Lihgting too is good.
Love this composition.
Best regards,

Hi Jitti.
It is completely not difficult to photograph tame squirrels. I like the pictures taken in conditions, more close to natural. Your picture is very nice. The sharpness and details are really outstanding. Colours are rich and clean at perfect degree. The shot is amazedly transparent. POV, DOV and cropping are very expressive. BRAVO. Excellent done. TFS and best regards.

Hello Jitti!
It's a good changhe with this squirrel. I like it's head down position and how well it clutches to the tree.
Cute show!
