. . . . .

I attended human resource seminar by Dave Ulrich last Tuesday & Wednesday . . Lots of new knowledge which can be applied to the organization . .
Around 75 persons from Indonesia, Malaysia, Srilangka, Singapore, Hong Kong participate in this forum . . Conducted at The Laguna resort (Sheraton) Bali . .

The second day was ended around 15:30 . . and I don't have plan except trying to capture the squirrel which were running around the restaurant . . I saw some of its on the first day, but was not able to spend time capturing it . .

The hotel staff suggested me to give them peanuts which provided by the restaurant . .
Building relationship and trust with this little friend is not difficult, and only few minutes they know me . .

With just 105mm lens, I get this close with them . . around 8 of them in that afternoon, but saw around 15-20 in the morning . .

Sharpen, add frame and resize . .

Thank you for viewing it . .

An excellent capture of your sweet new friend. I love the way it's paws are held (probably full of peanuts:) The color and detail are excellent. TFS

Soooooooooo cute. :-)

This little fella jumped out of the screen at me when I saw him (or her?) and had to respond. Congrats on capturing this superb image. TFS.

Hi Tjutjut!

Very funny animal.
Cheers and thanks!

Thanks to the staff for the peanuts and thanks to you for making this picture. It is really precious how you managed to capture him. Of course technical perfection, but the atmosphere is just perfect.

What a cute little friend Tjutjut,beautiful compo.TFS.Necla.

These little guys are a challenge but you got him perfectly. Mice DOF consentrating on his eyes - The VS on that lens is really helpful.

On another note - have you been considering the new Nikon D300 as a possible upgrade? I'm really considering it.


Hi Tujtjut,
Great Capture!
Lovely colours,
Fantastic catch and sharpness picture,
Well done.

Hello Tjujut, very good portrait of your little furry friend. Good focus on the eyes and very good exposure. Well done,


Bonjour my dear friend,
curious, this small squirrel which understood well that the place of the restaurant is good for its stomach. It seems with these legs joined to ask the alms to have its peanut. What great focus its sharp glance! It seems to smile on your POV.

Hi Tjutjut! What great capture of this very animated subject! Very good focus with good depth. The details of the paws are so amazing with the focus as it blurs to the background.
Very well done!
Freddie :)

Great great great shot, wonderful details and color. TFS
