Photo of the Day-Cute Squirrel

I love squirrels. There are many of them living around the lake in my community and every time I go for a walk I enjoy watching them. My apartment is on the 3rd floor and I have a screened in balcony that looks out into a large tree-I love sitting our there because it feels like I am sitting in a tree house. Often I see squirrels just laying out on a branch flat on their stomachs resting and it is beyond adorable. I also find myself jealous of them as they so easily jump off off the roof of my building into the trees and run up and down the branches, it looks like so much fun!
This photo was taken with my 100mm 2.8 Macro lens at 1/125 second ISO 400 f2.8. The only thing I don’t like about it is that because I shot it at 2.8 the tail is blurred and I would have liked to have it in focus also. I am learning that when photographing animals unless I am intending to have a part of them out of focus it is better to shoot at at least 5.6-8.0. Enjoy!
