Looking for peanuts but settled for corn.



Gotta take time to stop and smell the flowers!

Both are very nice shots! I like to second one just a tiddy bit better because of the composition.

Thanks, folob. Someone on another forum said it would be a better image if it were shot without the twig in front of the squirrel in #1. See what you think.

Hi Gary. I still vote for the original #2. I think the close-up head shot is striking, mainly because the bright eye catches your attention immediately and draws one to study the shot. Well done! You should enter that one in the POTD contest.

I've always liked animal shots that focus in on the eyes. I've got a large collection of such shots myself.

I understand the concern about the twig ... But I can live with it. #2 is the best and yes, send it to POTD!

Gary, you're a fraud! That cute litte feller is a pet, I can see in pic #2 where you've been scratching the back of his neck LOL. I do agree with Steven and Folob to enter this shot in the potd. A winner for sure!

Personally, I like the twig removed. You did a very nice job there, too!

Number two is the winner. However, no chip in NY would be seen in public with his hair messed up like that, good job.

Many thanks! I've taken everyone's advice and entered it.

Thanks! First of all, he's not in public. He's at the florist. And, he ain't in NY. This is a KY squirrel. :P
