What a marvelous squirrel capture, Heather! FAntastic detail and clarity! We have tons of them in the backyard and I enjoy their antics (although they really consume enormous amounts of bird feed!) although my husband does not! In self-defense, I will soon start to shoot them! HUGE CONGRATULATIONS on this outstanding Finalist and Good luck in the next round! #9176915
