photoblog image Squirrel's tail

Squirrel's tail


Just a squirrel's tail.

For some reason or other I tend to end up facing a squirrel rather than see it side on, so this was a bit of a treat. I thought it made a lovely shape, nice and furry too.

Ha Ha.
Looks like a fire hazard to me.
I have a few accidental pics like this...I wasn't quick enough to get the pic before the animal dashed off.

Great DOF, I think the hairdresser did a great job here, so did you Ellie.
I know they use squirrel tails for paint brushes and that is the first thing that came to mind for me with this.
Great details and DOF here Ellie!
A nice change to a common subject, good detail and composition

Just yesterday a house guest was telling us what Mary said...that they use squirrel hair in some art paintbrushes. So now I can see why, up close and personal. Thanks, Ellie. smile

Excellent detail Ellie and great perspective you've captured here.
You have obtained a very good detail of the tail of the squirrel! .
What a fluffy delight! Great shot, Ellie... I can see the individual hairs, it's so detailed! Congratulations on a beautiful and original photo.

Interesting and amusing with lots of detail and a good composition Ellie, well done.

Hello Ellie. I love this image, so nice to see just the thing that separates a Rat from a Squirrel in many peoples point of view. I for one am not one of them. Just lovely. Ps i have a squirrel for tomorrows pic !
