As Flickr isn't available where I live, I'm glad that this image was also available through Safaritalk.

I especially admire photography of deeply saturated colors, so this image immensely appeals to me.

It's a great service to all Safaritalk members and visitors to share these fine images with us.

Thank you very much for such a beautiful squirrel portrait.

That's a terrific image from the Sonoran Desert Museum!

The subject stands out with such clarity from the bokeh blurred background.

Every hair is so sharply rendered.

The squirrel's tiny ear reminds me of newborn baby's ears.

Thank you for posting it.

Yellow Bellied Marmot, Yellowstone, thankfully the only creature I saw as I walked back to my car alone from the Canyon Lower Falls to the carpark. The rest of the family hiked on, I was left to pickup the car to meet them later. Not one other person, no bear-spray, nerve racking walk. Not a week after getting home, someone posted a photo of a Grizzly on the very trail. Anyway, he was a friendly sight with his Chocolate and Caramel coat. Shot with the trusty SX40.

Squirrels are cool! Some of my pictures of the little rascals, all taken with my D4s and my 200-400 f/4. Taken in Telemark, Norway. Busy lifes they live eating, climbibg and dodging Goshawks.

This Douglas squirrel (Tamiasciurus douglasii) is a pine squirrel found in the Pacific coastal states and provinces of North America. I photographed him on the western side of Mt. Ranier in the State of Washington where he was having lunch in a grove of tall pine tree. That day there was a raging forest fire about a 100 miles to the west and the smoke and ashed were carried by the wind over the national park.

 

Late in the afternoon the sun shone through small openings in clouds of smoke and speckled the forest floor with a beautiful orange light. It accentuated the natural pale orange color on the chest and belly of the squirrel.

Red Squirrel   Isle of Anglesey,North Wales where a cull of Greys has enabled the native Reds to expand their range. To expand the gene pool some European cousins have been imported resulting in some darker coloured offspring.
