Took this photo while strolling across Chicago Millenium Park. This fellow is not at all shy or curiously watching my every move.

It's so cute! the leaf's colors is very beatiful! (Excuse me for my bad english)

Hi Sourav,

It's very cute,
Strong colors,
good pov,
Very good contrast,
It's great my friend,
Thanks for sharing,
keep continue,


I was thinking 'that's a lot of fallen leaves for August' ... then I saw the date you took it.
What a perky little guy. Great shot!


Nice shot, these little fellows are tough to capture. If you had time, maybe you could have gotten it from an even lower angle.
About PP, I would not have increased saturation. Have you tried adding contrast with USM, curves or levels in PS?

Hi Sourav, great capture of this cute little animal! The sharp focus is wonderful, and the pose seems to be typical of a squirrel who is deciding if he should run away. :)

Thanks for sharing!


Too bad not more points for this pic as it is very colorful, touching and well posed.
