    Nice one! Did you give him something to eat ?
  • Steve Bethell 5y

    Love the shallow DOF and detail here Steve!!, these guys look so comical!!, cheers Steve.
  • Flavio~ PRO 5y

    So cute! The tree on the background (oof) balances the image and the framing with the two brown lines is a great choice!
    Love the compo and the isolation of the sweet subject!!
  • Photos_by_Angela 5y

    Awesome shot of this cute little guy, the dof and composition is great too.
  • Leona Biskie PRO 5y

    That's a very cute capture Steve. He is a really pretty color.
  • Cindy PRO 5y

    Gotta love squirrels. The colors are wonderfully vibrant. Didn't know Harlequin Romance novels started here.
  • John Frost PRO 5y

    What a cute shot Steve ! Haven't seen many of these little critters now that we have two cats ...
  • David Mor 5y

    wonderful coloursand superb bokeh - a bit surprising given the lens type
  • Kim's Pics :) PRO 5y

    One of my favorite subjects.....just love this one!! Great color and comp!

    BTW, I had a good read on your link for Harlequin Romance and that was really interesting. I didn't know that it all started here in our city!
  • Julie 5y

    Cute squirrel! But boy, I never would have thought that Harlequin is from Winnipeg!!!
  • mtdvetter PRO 5y excellent capture my friend, excellent DoF and tac sharp focus on the little guy!
  • StephenZacharias PRO 5y

    Thanks everyone!

    Wishing you all a great week. Was a great weekend which ended in a short trip to Birds Hill Park. Only took all summer to get out to the water. To cold in the end to really swim but had a good time just getting out of town and cooking over the fire.
  • Aaron Eakin PRO 5y

    Really great shot, Steve! Excellent DoF and sharpness of the squirrel. You shot this with your 18-105? Maybe I don't need to shell out for the 70-300 after all. :)
  • StephenZacharias PRO 5y

    Yes Aaron. I get some pretty results wth the kit lens. Of course you need to be close enough and that takes a little luck!
  • ☺jUsTcLiCk☺ 5y

    Love this shot Steve.
  • eudæmon 5y

    that's a great shot you got with the kit lens! And those red ones are becoming increasingly rare, we don't see any out here anymore. Interesting tidbit in your narrative, too - I once happened to run into a Harlequin Romance convention where the (mostly female) fan community got to meet some of the cover models in person. Absolute riot. I had no idea this "movement" started in Winnipeg!
  • StephenZacharias PRO 5y

    Zun that would have been quite the experience. I suppose you were there to take pictures I can assume. I am pretty happy with what you can do with this lens. Think I'll stick to the three I have but sure think of adding to the arsenal. Still contemplating a new Point and Shoot. I think I would get more photo taken as I just can't always take the DSLR with me or choose not to.
  • Keith Armstrong 5y

    great friendly frame - so glad Manitoba doesn't have the black squirrel we do out east
