Damn it! it's Spring and I'm gonna come out!

There was a fresh snow fall in the high desert of Eastern Oregon last week and the ground squirrels at a rest area along Oregon 20 were not letting a few inches of white stuff deter them.

Is this a composite: No
A7Riv, FE200-600 @ 1.4 TC, hand held, f/10, 1/2000, iso 640, manual exposure. Processed in LR & PS CC. Cropped to 5472x3920. I exposed this to just barely avoid blowing the snow, so I brought up the squirrel in processing.

Sweet looking little fellow, Dennis. Yes, he does look very much like he is looking for spring. Nice composition with plenty of room for him to explore. Nicely done.

A cool critter wondering about the change in landscape.
Well seen and captured.

Ha! He looks like I feel. Will this chilly, windy spring never end? Nicely done, Dennis.

A cutie and a beauty - the composition is excellent and you caught the crispness of the snow around the squirrel very well. Top-notch shot.

Such a cutie! Love the tunnel he’s coming out of!
