    I was happy with the DOF too. It's funny to me to see the leaves on the trees behind him like that, because I see them every morning looking out my front window. Well, actually, now they're bare branches, but you know what I mean.

    thats the beauty of photography; the ability to blur the background. don't be afraid to shot something against an undesirable background with a wide f/stop. more than likely it will blur into very pleasing colors making for a beautiful backdrop. again, nice work.

    Nice stuff. Would love it if he/she had turned around to face the camera. It is so hard to find well trained squirrel model these days

    Love the shot, though. I have a thing for squirrels, and they're in no short supply on campus.

    Actually, this squirrel is a female. My wife and I watched her come to our squirrel feeder every day. She wasn't huge at this point, but I think we have pictures of her somewhere laying on her side, belly all extended, just ready to pop.
