Hier matin, quelle ne fut pas ma surprise de prendre en flagrant d駘it ce petit 黎re dans l'une des cabane que j'avais soigneusement construit pour une 騅entuelle famille aviaire. Bon, en effet le but premier 騁ait de fournir un logis une nouvelle famille. Mais jamais je n'ai eu en t黎e que la famille serait de l'ordre des mammif鑽es!!! ノvidemment, je me suis laiss attendrir par ce petit 黎re et je suis fort impatient de voir combien se d駭ombrera sa descendance. Ici, il 騁ait en train de voyager des morceaux de carton afin de se mettre bien l'aise dans son nouvel habitat. Quel effront!

Personnellement, je trouve la photo un peu flou, mais je tenais partager ce moment matinal avec vous.

Ha! Nice one Joseph. A squirrel house, and not a bird house. I'd love to know if she stays there. Good composition and stiry. Very well done.

Hilarious capture, it looks a bit like what happens when an optimistic female tries on new clothes ;-))
Good sharpness, colours and light. Maybe an idea to clone out the branch going from the arm to the side of the frame.

Tout simplement formidable d'avoir pu immortaliser cette sc鈩e. Bien jou, bravo!

Great colours,composition and detail.

haha when I saw the thumb nail image I thought some one has stuffed a soft toy into a letter box but I see now its a over sized critter who has taken up residence in a bird box. Excellent capture!

A very cheeky squirrel. This looks like a very tight squeeze. You have already pointed out the soft focus, but with such a candid shot such as this I don't think it really matters.
Well done.

Funy pose,
It looks like a painting from the talebook.
Wonderful moment,superb condition photo.

Exceptional moment you captured here Joseph. One can relate to the stretching and getting out of this house. Great shot, well done.

Excellent ! Gr稍e votre note on comprend mieux cette situation 騁onnante. Clich sympa !
Well done !

This is absolutely wonderful! Technically very good with great depth-of-field and composition, but more importantly, you captured the decisive moment! The way this little guy has positioned his hands on the perch and the roof of the bird house and is squeezing himself out of the whole is just perfect!

Joseph, It seems he is saying Damn! I better cut back on those extra walnuts before bedtime!! Too much hip action goin' on here!! ;-)))
An excellent moment captured here. Very well composed and a very special shot IMO. I like it!

This is quite delightful. Great photo with good and unique composition. Squirrel is definitely "thinking out of the box". Thanks for sharing him.

Wonderful capture Joseph,
Excellent composition, good details and colours.
The focus is a bit soft, but this is a very unique shaot.
Well done, thanks for posting

Joseph, this is just very, very nice. Excellent capture. It's a pleasure to capture such moment. Thanks a lot for sharing.

Pov, composition and dof are perfect.

I had the feeling sharpness could be improved a little bit. I tried a little workshop; I do hope you like it.

great shot with warm colors of this little thief :-). Squirrels are funy to watch as long as they donエt steal bird eggs.

What a great moment you have captured. It reminds me of a cartoon when large animals squeeze into impossibly small spaces. Excellent.

Drle d'oiseau, cet 馗ureuil! La composition, les couleurs, la profondeur de champ mettent en valeur cette pose hors du commun. Un peu flou mais si peu. D'ailleurs trop de nettet g穰erait la "douceur" de cet animal.

Excellent capture - the expression and everything is spot on. TFS and well done. Tim

Indeed squirrels can eat eggs. But if you saw him bringing stuff inside, I guess he made the bird house one of his homes. They can have several. One for the little ones to grow, and others as resting point or backup solution. They can also build the nest themslves. A squirrel nest is round (i.e there is a roof) and all entries are closed.
Very great shot.

Hello Joseph,
I致e chosen to add a comment to this photo out of your beautiful collection because it illustrates a fact of life not known to many: Red Squirrels (Tamiasciurus hudsonicus) are important nest predators of North American birds. Just as this one checked the nestbox for a nesting place, they search for eggs and chicks of birds in tree hollows. In this particular case, the squirrel acts as a competitor for a nesting site. Life isn稚 easy in the wild and your picture tells it clearer than words.

What a great squirrel shot.I never even seen something like that, let alone getting a sharp picture. 10/10

Hi Hi Hi!!! Moment vraiment cocasse pris sur le vif. Il fallait avoir un doigt tr鑚 rapide pour prendre cet 馗ureuil en flagrant d駘it. Super

Hi Joseph,

What a fantastic action shot, just spotted it in the recent critiques, the composition is excellent, with good sharp detail and lovely colours, its amazing how these Squirrels get into all sorts of places, I bet birds hate them for pinching their nuts and now their houses too.
