Squirrel (The best photo I've ever taken)

I think this is the best photo I've ever taken. I've really gotta thank my subject for how it came to be. I took a bunch of these, some failed badly, some worked better.

Look at that tiny face. Keeping eye on the short paparazzi and her tall friend while eating as fast as possible. And the paws, the fur, the tail and the pink nipples on the soft tummy.

The squirrel stayed, fortunately for me on that branch for a while. The other squirrels (there was a bunch) weren't as photogenic. Or I wasn't fast enough to capture their fast paced essence.

Suomeksi (In Finnish): 

Olen sitä mieltä, että tämä on paras kuva, jonka olen koskaan ottanut. Siitä saan kiittää kuvan aihetta. Otin näitä jokusen, jotkut epäonnistuivat surkeasti, toiset onnistuivat paremmin. Katso tuota naamaa ja nappisilmiä tarkkailemassa lyhyttä paparazzia ja tämän pitkää kaveria. Onnekseni tämä orava pysyi oksalla tovin, sillä sen kaverit eivät olleet kovinkaan kuvauksellisia. Tai siis en ollut tarpeeksi nopea nappaamaan otoksia niistä.
