Love that pose and eye contact. You captured his look of curiosity and cuteness so perfectly in this beautiful image Yves. I wonder what he was thinking too :)

Jenny Stevens

There is something special about eye contact with wild animals. I am sure you felt it. Lovely shot and what an expression. Yes, he is a cute little guy !

Debra Plett

Wow this one is a beauty Yves. The cute little guy has given you a very nice pose. And the tree adds some very nice texture to the image. Your soft bokeh is the icing on the cake. Super shooting.

That little squirell is a star model, no doubth. I am quite proud of that shot that shows a communication is possible with nature. But I stay humble because like you I know that so many factors must be right for a good shot like that one.

Seeing I was not leaving the scene, the red squirrel decided to quit and jumped from the waste bin to the next tree trunk. He gave me a long expressive last look and climbed the tree faster than a bullet. Lost him in the dense canopy but I sure keep souvenir of the cute little guy.
