What do you think?
Anything I could have done differently?

I think you did very well by catching the sleeping babies. I like the expression on the squirrels face as you caught him by surprise. I took the liberty of doing a little editing as there were a few things that were distracting to me. The foreground was too bright and the DOF is a bit shallow. I tried to sharpen the little guys eyes a bit and boosted the levels to bring out more detail. I'm cetainly no pro at PP but I am still practicing. :-)

Nice job at the editing! I like how you made the foreground look way less exposed than in my original.

haha, thanks. We had 2 before. Then they got old and we let them go. They still hang around in the yard... always together. Now we have 4! I've been working a lot though. But tomorrow I'm I'm off so going to hold them so the get used to us.

Nice shot!

We have had them too. We are a very nature-oriented family and have raised many many animals so one day a neighbour dropped a baby squirrel off that had fallen out of its nest. So we raised it and built it a squirrel house in the backyard and she lived there and came to the house everyday for a snack and to say hi. She had babies and they started coming to the house too... sadly the original female died, she hung around for 3 years and suddenly stopped coming around the house. All in all a fun experience, its hilarious to play with them and to have them run around you as if they were running around a tree playing with another squirrel!
