This fellow has dug a hole under the snow to access a tree with a bird feeder. He pokes his head up from the tunnel to check out the landscape. Canon 10D at 400mm, overexposed 2 stops (snow).

Very nice job of getting the exposure Joe, and the squirrel itself is great. I have a love hate relationship with these critters as one minute they are hilarious and the next they are stealing my bird shots away. I notice the crystals in the snow which is great. On my monitor I would have upped the contrast slightly, but that's subjective stuff. Lovely shot.

Thank you for the comment. I'll try the suggestion. I have a second photo attached which I have upped the contrast. The problen I faced is that the squirrel became darker to a point where some features were lost. It is slightly more contrasty than the first but after this point the squirrel became too dark.
Happy Easter!

Wonderful shot. Very well done in a difficult situation. I have no reason to complain about the weather when I see how wildlife such as your Red Squirrel survive. Woody
