They're such expressive little creatures and this image shows that so well. Lovely composition and details, it looks like he's ready for some action with that paw up and ready too. Great timing on this one Yves.

I kept a fair distance and he he stay there for a minute or two. I had time to change the angle and do some expressive shot like that one. A good moment of photography.

I like the idea of the paw waving.... Interesting comp with a half moon like structure behind him. Nicely done Yves.

Yves Langlois

Yes, from that angle the compo is quite good. Thanks for the appreciated comment.

Yes, The guy had lot more attitude than the usual wild one. It remind me that nature often engage a comunication with us. It can't be on the language level but good will, imagination and little effort do miracles.

Little guy with lots of attitude, I can just see that paw giving you the what for. A fun moment in nature.

Barely a minute in the shooting the little red squirrel had enough. Unfortunately you can't see the motion but he is waving its paw, like saying - Go Home-, -Get Lost- or -Peanuts please!-. He was very cute doing that.
