Beautiful light on these. I like the ones where he was having a scratch and the first of those is so sharp and crisp.

Nice shots Mark. In my area we don't have red squirrels, grey only.

Thanks Raf and Emmanuel for the comments.

Raf, I was really lucky with the light, as it gave a perfect catchlight in the eyes in every shot.Also lucky that it was unaware of my presence,suggesting a youngster as usually you dont get anywhere like this close to them.

These are nice. It does have a youngster look to it I would say. And, that 5 MP brought out the details quite well. I suppose the tripod helped in that regard.

Thanks Steve.I could have probably managed without the tripod for these shots due to the squirrel being in a sunny spot. Elsewhere though at this place, light is really poor in the woods so a tripod is essential in such cases.
