Baby black Squirrel:

I work at a University and there are several squirrels and I enjoy watching them chase each other around campus. One day a guy saw me watching them and told me about a small baby black one that was on campus so I grabbed my camera and he showed me where he was. He was a ver friendly little guy. I was just so happy to have seen him so I wanted to share. :)

Hi Adam,

How cute is this little guy, I have heard of Black Squirrels before but never seen one and I'm not disapointed, great POV and the composition is beautiful, the details are lovely and sharp and the colours are superb.

TFS Hilary :o)

Hi Adam,
Very cute baby! Nice shot. Very sharp on head and body parts. Would love to see sharp tail too...
Still a very nice shot.

This little guy is just gorgeous, Adam. : )
You captured him so well.
Perfect POV and pose and expression.
He seems quite absorbed by something on the ground.
Love the catchlight in the eye.
Very sharp details and superb exposure
to bring out all the values in the black fur.
There are some black squirrels at Stanford as well, and I have been trying to photograph one for years. Still trying. : )
TFS. ; )

Hi Adam,
What a beauty, and so well captured. I've seen gray and red squirrels, but never a black one. Great details and colors and excellent work on the low POV and the shallow DOF. Maybe a 2 stop smaller aperture would have given you the tail in focus as well.

Muy bonita imagen al ras del suelo Adam, con excelente DOF y agudeza.
El ajustado DOF brinda un perfecto foco sobre el cuerpo y un interesante OOF hacia atrás.
Suaves tonos, buena luz y correcto encuadre.
Un gran trabajo.
Saludos... Ricardo

Very nice image to the level of the ground Adam, with excellent DOF and sharpness.
Adjusted DOF offers a perfect focus on the body and a interesting OOF back.
Soft tones, good light and correct framing.
A great work.
Greetings... Ricardo
