P8285080 Hungry Forager

Squirrels are back now that I put out my bird feeder. They're looking very skinny and underfed. It breaks my heart to see them looking so bad. Just look at that puny tail.
This image was quite noisy since I underexposed to prevent burnout in the light areas. Denoising made the almost-sharp 1/40 sec. image look even less sharp. Sharpening made it look a bit worse, so I applied a soft blur and that did the trick with a marginal image shot through my sliding door early this morning.

A charming image! The flowers give it added interest and color, but that petal on his head is priceless. V.

A perfect shot Isabel, looks gorgeous. The squirrel doesn't look that skinny to me, looks just fine ... making his provisions for the coming winter months.
