Overcast day. SHQ, 3 Shot Burst. Definitely the goofiest squirrel I've ever watched. I think he had a bad case of fleas.

I would've given this a 10 had I voted on that challenge. I guess it helps that I think squirrels are terribly cute (even the semi-rabid ones that I've seen in NYC and Boston Common) and fun to photograph. None of my photos of them have ever come out as awesome as yours though! I love how you've captured this one's personality :) I even like the choice of border! Everything works here, it should've scored higher.

I normally don't care about someones title but yours made me laugh out loud so it gets an extra pont for that. Nice focus, colors are vibrant, overall nice photo. 7 from me.

Very nice.

If it weren't for the bright twig at the front left and the stupid border, this would be a 10. 8

Great capture getting a shot of the squirrel in that pose

Nice character shot, nice and sharp, effective dof. Some great textures. Composition works well. Tricky shot to expose for, nicely handled here. Not entirely sure about your border, I think a better one could have bumped this up a mark for me.

Cute pose and nice color. I think a vertical format would have worked better. And I don't really care for the thick border.

Great catch, great colors. Cropping could be better, although I realise you want the whole tail in there. Maybe vertical frame?

Hey,that is my buddy,9 !

Now does the title describe the squirrel on your frame....it's a toss up! Overall shot of the squirrel is oK b except you might have done something about the "Y" twig crossing the end of that great tail. The DOF is great. I'm so so about the composition....the tree branch is fine but Ithink the squirrel's position on it a bit too centered. OVerall I like it...except of course, the frame.

I really like the lighting in this shot.

Good composition on this one. Branch and squirrel work well in this framing. Nice definition of course. In my opinion, border is a touch heavy, but not bad. (That's just a comment, I don't base a vote on borders or titles) In all, really nice. Looks as if one could reach out and stroke that good looking fur.
