So sweet! It is the snow which makes this common subject unusual and shows us once again that great wildlife shots can also be taken in the garden. Shame the crop is a bit tight for this view, though having said that a really tight composition, would have shown off the snow on its face even moreā€¦

Thanks for recognition. Used Panasonic DMC- 150, which before the LX-7 was the favorite small profile/sensor-Leica lens combo for many years at the turn of the century. Shot in backyard at 160th sec at 5.6, at 160 asa. I was lucky to catch both snow standing still, and Squirrel pre-occupied with eating. James Dennis Kelley
