Congrats on your POTD! I love this image and the squirrel is so cute. And the tail almost looks painted! I have squirrels visit my bird feeder and for now I have stopped them from climbing the pole, but even though they aggravate me at times, I do like to watch them and think they are cute.

Thank you all very much for your messages and congratulations!

Endre, Bruce, and Beverly - thank you and it was pleasure to be in the same class with you! I will be taking Jim's "Advanced PS techniques" now.

Maria - I have used "smudge" technique, see http://www.skeller.ch/ps/beagle_smudge.php for tutorial if you are interested.

This is such an incredible shot!! Can you tell me more about your camera? I'm looking to foray into digital SLRs, and have been looking at the Canon EOS range - hadn't considered Nikon.
It's so sharp - did you use a tripod? How did you get it so sharp? Did it sit still for a while?
