Startled Squirrel

As I sat on the deck, I heard a scuffling sound behind me. I turned with my camera, in time to get a shot of this cute little squirrel sitting on the fence post before he took off.

    Awesome…a piece of art!

  2. I can only say WOW. I think that is the best processing I have seen on a great shot of a squirrel. Phew….. You know this is really special. 🙂 The texture is perfect for that shot.

    (and yes, that lake supplies our water – they’ve had to move their pumping station further out into the lake in order to continue the supply…)

  28. Hi Pat, This is one of those shots where a million funny captions comes to mind. You can just see the little wheels turning inside his tiny squirrel mind. (The texture work is perfect BTW.)
