I just love this one!!!
Wonderful action shot. A lovely little creature! Beautiful!
Hi Bob, great shot....I reckon a bear was probably chasing him and you were in the way!!!
Muybridge would have been proud of you...!!!
It's really impressive that you've managed to completly freee the motion of this cute squirrel...i would very much like to know the shutter speed on this one, and the entire exif for that matter.
The full-frontal POV here is equaly amazing...what bait did you use that it was running so fast to you? :))
Anyway, great focsu and sharpness and also very good exposure and light levels.
Bravo and TFS

Cool! He looks quite serious too. Excellent capture and a great tale! "I fought the squirrel and the squirrel one!" The GEICO squirrels can't compete with this valiant nut warrior...;-)

This is a great action capture!
Squirrels are probably the most depicted animal in TN but this is the first time I see one completely airborn...
Good freeze of movement, excellent details in the fur coat; and I notice his focus!!

Terrific action shot! I thought he was jumping with joy to see you! But the grey ones seem a lot more agressive than our brown Squirrels. Perfect capture, very sharp and I love the colours of the fur. Well done!
TFS and regards, Ulla

Extraordinary image as you do not find such freezed close up photos from squirrels.
Besides squirrels are very fast and often changing direction...
Hi Bob. This a great shot of the Squirrel. he was after you . you have captured it with great detail and colour in the fur. a like the low POV you have of him. well done TFS. good notes too.
I guess he showed you! It is a great capture. Quick work on your part too.

Superb timing from a great frontal PoV to give this Grey Squirrel lots of bounce. Nice eye contact: he's looking right at us. Good simple composition and fine contrasting BG.

What an amazing moment ! Wild life can be surprising. You've just caught that one at the right time. The best quality of a photographer, when he's at the right place at the right time, is to shoot. Perfect reaction, thanks for sharing.
Bonjour of France !
This is such an amazing action shot! Perfect timing and great composition.
Very well done
Oh Bob, what an absolutely fabulous action shot. You have capured him at the perfect moment, in razor sharp detail. Technically a very, very difficult shot to get. You should be so proud of this one. I am sooo jealous.

Wow, great action shot, even though you could have been on the other end of those claws you stuck fast to get the shot and the squirrel also got what he wanted and that was you outta there. Two happy chappies, all is well.
Beautiful exposure, colour, sharpness and detail, wonderful image.
Impressive action shot!
It's so good the frozen movement on the air of that angry squirrel.
It's curious beacause the shadow can't be seen on the ground, but clearly the animal is on a jump.
My compliments and thanks for share it.

A unique shot. Great action shot, stunning sharpness.
Simply outstanding and you have freezed a fabulous moment for eternity. Sharpness, colours, lighting, exposure, focus are just superb and one cannot but appreciate this captured action with a sense of stupefaction. Great indeed. Amazing and bold POV and a classical composition. Kudos.
- joey (24909)
- [2007-11-05 6:51]
you have succeeded in amazing me yet again.
+++ The POV makes this shot... head-on has great impact.
The sharpness of this image is a whole other thing... the detail in the fur is immense and the clarity is excellent.
Awesome action captured aswell. The way the squirrel is in mid-air running at full pelt. Stunning.
Superb focusing! You've kept this running rodent in perfect focus even when it is coming straight towards you and at speed.
Perfect lighting and natural colours.
--- Absolutely, totally, completely and utterly... NOTHING!
Definately your best post so far and is straight into my favourites theme.
Keep them coming Bob!
Exceptionally well done,

Wow! I think this little fellow might be part of the squirrel mafia that I've heard about. Terrific capture! The details are incredible, and talk about action! He's flying through the air and his little claws are straight out. This is one of your best, yet.

perfect in-flight capture, focussed spot-on, pleasantly rich colours, clear details! Dreadful monster attacking, hiding its bushy tail, mimicking a rabid rat.
The squirrel defending its territory is a good interpretation, another one that I often see in our parks is that our squirrels are expecting being fed by us with peanuts. The ones attacking me have always turned round in two meters distance when realizing my empty hands. Another one that was attacking my daughter was definitely climbing up her trousers because she was the one with peanuts in her hands.
Thank you! My best regards,

This has to be one of the funniest and happiest pics I've seen in ages. What a great capture. Good sharpness and colour. I don't think I've ever seen a shot like it. Very beautiful.

Thank you for opportunity to meet your superb photo collection. This one is simply outstanding. Timing and pictured moment are fantastic and unreal. I know features of the S2 Pro a bit. Exposure and colour reproduction are perfect. I also like great POV, tremendous eye-contact and symmetrical composition. Bravo. Great sample for imitating.
P.S. I am grateful to you for accurate definition. I agree with you. Sometimes human traces are looked more attractively than natural objects (for my last picture – than tree branch).

your fetured shot is very exciting to note here. The direct eye to eye confrontation is very dramatic and you gave a perfect shot to document it.
Excellent sharpness and superbs details of the squirrel.
The smoothness of the colour and the consistent blurry background is wonderful.
Well captured and splendid composition.
Simple but effective.
