Beautiful shot this :0)

Genie said...

What a fine nature shot. That fail is definitely a work of art. Not until you see macro close ups of these little guys do you see just how beautiful they are. The capture turned out so well in black and white. You are so good at this. genie

sitting so quietly, he must have thought you had peanuts!!

Squirrels are beautiful, even though annoying. Nice.

I love all the detail in that tail.
I had a pet squirrel when I was a kid.

Awesome shot of the gray squirrel.

This looks fantastic in shades of black and white. B

Great shot ........ my pastures are full of ground squirrel holes, wish I had tree squirrels instead ... oh yeah, I would need trees for them, guess that's why I am overrun with ground squirrels.

Niiice shot & looks awesome in b&w! =)

This works really well for black and white. Love the title. He posed in such a way that you didn't have to worry about a modesty patch. lol

Marc Heath said...

What a great shot. It works really well.

barbara l. hale said...

He looks so dignified sitting there. Great shot!

Grandma C's Place said...

Great shot! Now I want to try for a photo kind of like that. lol

MTWaggin said...

Nice shot! Love it in b&w, something I've not quite mastered ... when it would look good and when it wouldn't. To think there was a time that was all we had! I have a whole new appreciation for Ansel Adams.

Pamela Gordon said...

Love this photo and the shades of grey. Great shot!

Renae said...

do you find that b&w tend to be faulty tho? i mean, the real b&w film use to make the photo interesting. now digital b&w are blurry where they shouldn't be, ya know?

i love your subject matter?

perhaps I am tired of b&w?

Deb said...

love the textures....great photo

Tammy said...

Great capture, love that pose! The black & white works perfectly for this photo!

Marie said...

What a marvelous B&W, Brian! You can see every strand of fur! Beautiful!

Cute little critter, beautifully photographed!

Misty DawnS said...

This is a truly beautiful photo, and your title made me giggle.

Ida said...

Awwww...what a sweet little fellow.

Faye said...

Have to ask, Brian--have you read "Shades of Gray" or just having a little fun with the current craze? The latter I suspect. :-) Regardless, an apt post title. And love how you've captured the texture of his fur.
