An unusual image, but very effective, it's a pity about the wooden slats in the BG, but still a good image.

Concentrate on equipment and you'll take technically good photographs. Concentrate on seeing the light's magic colours and your images will stir the soul. - Jack Dykinga

He was on my deck under the bird feeder. I hope he is around this summer so I can get a shot against a dark back ground. Hard to take a picture of a white squirrel on a snow bank.LOL

Great shot being white on white. Hard one to take. There's a town in southern Missouri named Marionville. It's home to hundreds of white squirrels. But there not albino like yours.
