Edinburgh Botanic Gardens: definitely a natural habitat!!!
The most curious of all the squirrels in the gardens that day....she (can't you tell?) took a peanut out of my hand. Shot with flash from a distance of about a metre. Aiming to get the tail as the frame in the background.

Excellent shot. I love the line of the tail.

Great close-up. I love the wave the curl makes as I think it adds a last final bit of interest.

In general I am over squirrel shots, but this one is just lovely :)

Great pose. Unfortunately the focus is on the tail.

Very nice squirrel picture, the colors are very nice. I think I would have enjoyed it more if you could have seen more of her, the crop seems a bit tight.

how many comments have you gotten with the word cute in them? well, here's another one...

wish the lighting wasn't so strong on the peanut. that tends to keep my focus, rather than keeping it on the animal. all the same, this is a nice capture. hope it does well for you.

Cute subject. A different angle may have been a more interesting shot.
