One of my friendly neighborhood squirrels. Literally shivering, poor little thing. I like that I can see my house reflected in his eye. And, of course, the snowflakes all over him.

I predict lots of snow shots in this challenge!

Poor little guy. I have squirrel friends too but my favourite one died, didn't see him all summer long. :( He would sit on my shoulder while he ate the nuts I gave him. He was a very relaxed squirrel. I miss him. :)

This is beautiful and endearing. I am a huge fan of squirrels and their inquisitive and playful nature. He really does seem like he wants to ask you a question. Perfect moment!

Well seen, looks slightly oversharp to my eyes, good shot though, looks very cold..

more space on the right, less on the left would make it a better image

This is fantastic, the focus is spot on, and the off center focal point with the snow actively falling is really nice. His hands being tucked in gives it so much more of a cold feeling. Great job.
