taken when I first got my Dslr back in August or September. It wouldn't let me get any closer than 30 feet, hence the cropped off tail because I hurried the shot. How does it(the picture)stand otherwise? Thoughts and comments welcomed.

I like this. It is a shame about that tail but these creatures can move pretty fast and you have got to be quick. I tool a load of squirrel pics to test the 300 mm lens on my 9500, and similarly I had cut off tails all over the place.

I think the subject contrasts nicely with the background too.

Yep, i can attest to the sneakyness of Omaha squirrls Good to see someone from the same town on the boards!

The pic is great.

I think the grass makes for a nice field of depth, its just a shame you didn't get him when his tail was popped up. But oh well! With wildlife and children, you best be gettin what you can, cause they certainly aren't going to cooperate.

Just another point though . . . are you old enough to be on here? And . . . is that blue and yellow camera really a DSLR?

I promise I never look at any of Frank Doorhof's pictures that have Nudity warnings. LOL, :G

I think I'm old enough to be out here, that's my 3 year old mimicking me over the Christmas Holidays. Thanks for the comments. Have a great day.

i think you could use a little sharpening here.. have you learned any post-processing skills yet? if you have not, that is your next goal.. really is needed to get the most of your dslr images..

Thanks, I wondered about the sharpness, and how much was too much. I'm working towards that goal. I did do some USM, finally got Photoshop Elements 4.0 (Can't afford the full blown version yet) for Christmas, so still practicing.

:sadoes that mean I can post anything untilI can get the pictures really, really sharp?

Thanks for your comments though, I really appreciate it.
