One of those darling stinkers who habitually raid my “squirrel proof” bird feeder .. on this occasion he at least looks a bit contrite!!! Bless his heart …

Image taken with the hand held Nikon D40x on February 9, 2009. Lens was the 70-300 mm vr Nikon at 1/500 shutter and f/5.0 ap, exp +.33 and iso 400. Post work included hdr in Photomatix from a single image duplicated twice in Photoshop at +/- 2. Orton applied, then some dodging and burning, levels and a texture from Princess of Shadows at Deviant Art.
