Superman Red Squirrel by Robin-Hugh Superman Red Squirrel by Robin-Hugh
I spent few hours to notice that this North American Red Squirrrel did always the same trip.

Another few hours to take 43 photos of this scene. Here is the best one on the 3 which were perfectly focused. Maybe this would have been much easier if I did have a infra-red cell but I am not that equiped.

Few jumps from this squirrel did not even let me press the trigger once before it was already landed the other side ;).

Us, Humans, are so slow compare to some other animals !

December 2009, Québec, Canada

Humans probably are the best large critters at turning in place. Great endurance, too! But squirrels climb trees much better. :)
