    Bit bored today, not feeling %100 so decided to take some pictures out the living room window of the squirrel on my bird table.

    Nothing amazing, just thought I'd get some close ups for fun.

    200-400 at 400mm, f5.6, ISO640, 1/80 second.

    He was having a good old scratch with his back legs here, focus is just off on the eyes but hey ho.

    Now, if only I could get the Robin and the Jay I keep seeing to land on my handy perch by the table long enough to get them!!

    "Nothing amazing"?
    I find these pretty amazing (says who has never in life managed to take ONE photo of a squirrel). Mostly so the shallow DOF and focus of the first. Cool.

    These are the large grey squirrels that are on the way to extinct the European Red Squirrel, after all, aren't they?

    (Oh, and I agree with Pascal in the feet in one, but that one's still good!)

    lol, yes his feet have been chopped but only because I wasn't really going for any award winners. He was standing on the bird table so it looked very un-natural so I was just going for some face detail, these wont be printed or seen outside the forums :)
