Fox squirrel at the knot
I love this pose. Squirrels frequently stopped for a picture on their in and out of this log. Shots coming out are much more appealing than those going in. I thing these are the second most colorful animals in the woods with the red fox being number one. I have yet to capture one of those in a camera trap here. That seeks to their scarcity in the habitat or extreme shyness. My guess is the former.
Technical: It could be argued the squirrel is centered but I think the composition works because of the depth provided by the distant trees.
