Had fun shooting this squirrel in the park a couple of years ago.
This is not photoshopped.
I actually had the miniature camera and a treat to get his attention.

Hope it makes you smile. You can find the story & image sequence behind capturing this image by clicking on "PHOTOGRAPHY 101" below, then follow the blue link to photos and the new discussion thread.
Trust me it will be worth the trouble.

That is is nice of you to say that, Jo Ann!!! I know it may not be as good as the other squirrel image but imho it still deserves an EFP for effort. Bless you and have a great weekend.

I can't stop smiling looking at this one, Sharon! Being a squirrel lover myself and feeding (and photographing) a "horde" that comes to my patio door every morning, this just tickles me to no end! It has a place of honor in my faves! :) Congratulations!
