That is a brilliant shot Ron, fine detail and the eye is in sharp focus too.

Great shot Ron and caught in a lovely pose. Good depth of field isolates the subject really well. Wish I had taken this.

Was reading the other day that the grey squirrel which decimated the native red squirrels are now facing decimation themselves, apparently there is now an influx of black squirrels and they are breeding faster than the greys. I kid you not, they were first introduced into the country in 1912 and their population is now soaring!

Fred it's true, look it up on wikipedia or Google, the Daily Mail did an article on the black squirrels and that's were I read about them, I had never heard of them before then.

Great photo Ron. Sometimes it seems a pity that squirrels are rodents, they look so cute and lend themselves to good photography!

...to Fred and Cyril, we get a diverse selection of colouring in the squirrels in our back garden here in mid-western Ontario,and there is a town south of here that has a group which includes several albinos.
