This squirrel plundered the bird feeder, which we had suspended on a tree outside the house. I saw it there as I wanted to try a lens on the back side of the house. The squirrel also saw me and fled grumbling to the next tree and remained at a higher branch, was sitting just outside my reach there. It groused and scolded the whole time with me and I also scolded it.
Good thing I had this camera with me. So I was able to photograph this dangerous and vicious animal. And yes, I came out alive from this nerve-racking confrontation.
Do not worry - I'm just joking. :-)

I see it is a 'dangerous' shot... but very well executed.
You really managed to freeze the squirrel beautifully in tricky light condition.
Nice composition and colours.
Very well done.
With warm regards,

Good morning Peter,
Calling this a "dangerous and vicious animal, contradict its view sitting on a branch - looks just an innocent creatur.
Fine pic. of one specie also not common in my country.
