Please feel free to view uncompressed.  Thank you for looking.

A beautifully composed image with amazing detaiI and sharpness, Dave. Excellent color and background as well. I love how the squirrel is illuminated, and the nut it is eating is a treat. Brilliant.

Our little reds take some beating, don't they. A beautiful portrait of this lovely squirrel enjoying her snack. The detail and colour are spot on, while the light brings out that lovely bright eye. Well done, Dave!

Must be clicked on for best appreciation of the detail and sharpness against the BG. The colors are superb and pleasing comp.

Brilliant color! She's a cutie-can see why you "revived" her. :)

Wonderful details and colours, David. Would have loved to see the bushy tail. I'd imagine if he/she was a bit to the right with the tail up, it would also help balance out the negative space, which is too empty as it is IMO.
Regards,

Des
