Default Squirrel

A shot of a rodent from a Calgary park
Epl-5 and 75-300 75mm f 5 iso 3200
in a poor light heavy treed area
IMO not bad for iso 3200

I'll second that, it is actually a really nice shot in terms of detail and the expression on the little bugger

Excellent detail, and spot-on composition, and the squirrel really struck a super cute pose for you. Well done, Fred.

This looks really nice, considering the conditions you mention. Maybe you could increase the noise a bit and the background would look a little bit smoother on the graininess, which would isolate the squirrel better? I never do these types of shots, so I'm not positive on how you usually process them, but that is my initial impression.

This has an Ektachrome 400 look to it which is really nice, I love the way the squirrel is framed by the greenery and one thing about this kind of light is that it brings out detail which may have been lost in harsher light, it's a lovely image Fred.

It really does have that 'certain something' Fred. I've chased squirrels all around local parks, taken hundreds of photos and never got one like that. Congrats.
