Winning Photo

Judges Comment

Here is the capture and story of a lovely encounter between the curious and the tolerant. It is a beautiful and amusing photo. I love the back lighting and the very short depth of field which adds force to the composition. Nice work.

Photographers Comment

My name is Steve Davis and I am a professional sports & wildlife photographer from Onalaska, WI. This image was taken last October while archery hunting from a ground blind in WI. The curious fox squirrel was photographed with a Canon 1DX body and a Canon 400/2.8L Series II lens at 800/sec wide open at F/2.8 @ ISO 400
