STOPS ALONG THE WAY

DAY IN THE SUN

Red Squirrel 2

With all the summertime visitors to our area we tend to forget the true denizens of the forest. Although there are a few species of birds that remain year round, you don’t need to go far to spot a squirrel in any season. We haven’t seen any raptors in the reserve this summer (the largest bird we’ve spotted is one lonely turkey) so the squirrels are running free. I took this shot in low light so I raised the ISO but the speed never got above 1/40sec. Exposure and shadow adjustments in Lightroom and noise reduction software in Macphun made the photo come to life.

  4. Sweet capture. I’m amazed it is so sharp at 1/40 sec. He must have kept perfectly still. 🙂
