Saw a tiny pair of footprints in the snow, then a tiny tuft of fur way up in the tree. Stalked and harassed this guy for twenty minutes before he allowed me a good look. Peek-a-Boo!

Good job on the focus, I think a tighter crop to get some of those distracting branches out of there would have helped.

Was he really peeking or just running around looking for food? He doesn't look in a peek a boo pose. Nice photo of a squirrel.

Nice title to draw the viewer into the picture.

With the squirrels long thin shape, and all the long thin branches he gets a little lost. In some ways this is almost good as it fits the idea of him trying not to be seen, but for visual impact he probably needs a different crop. There is a danger that to any passing voter he just gets lost in the strong visual lines.

If you could have captured him peeking around a branch instead it would have been even better :- )

Good luck though.

Well captured. The squirrel must have been resting.

great texture in the tree, the smaller twigs with the sprouting leafs accentuate it. the squirrell is sl. camaphloged (sp?) which adds to the element. That blue sky is too good to be real.
