Got Squirrel Shots? (In memorial of Rupert)

I have enjoyed seeing in the backyard what I thought was one black squirrel (Eastern gray squirrel, I think) with a red/brown tail. However, as seen in this photo, there are at least two such squirrels in the neighborhood.

Thanks Nosliwmit for hosting.

I hope everyone who posts in POTW is doing well.

I have been absent from POTW for quite awhile. I am pleased to return with some of the photos I captured when a hawk visited our backyard. We did not see it bathing in the standing water or going after prey. The hawk was standing in this spot when we returned home from a walk, and that's where it remained until it flew away. This is only the second time we have seen a hawk in our backyard during the almost 41 years we have lived in this house in Midland, Michigan.

I used an RMC Tokina 500mm mirror lens on a monopod-mounted Pentax K-S2. I shot through the glass of a sliding door.

Comments and criticism are welcome. Please send a PM if you prefer doing so instead of commenting in this thread.

Varungvg, I did not steal your idea. I captured the image below (with a 500mm mirror lens on my monopd-mounted K-S2) before I saw your squirrel image.
Best wishes to all.

Below are a few images from my most recent visit to a small wetland approximately 15 minutes from my home at Midland, Michigan.
I like to go there before sunset and watch great egrets fly in and roost.

The lens is an older 100-300mm. The K-S2 is on a monopod.The tight shot of the egrets with one great blue heron was captured at ISO 2500, 1/200, f/5.6.

Comments and criticism of my images are most welcome.

Best wishes to all.

Below are some of my images from an evening shoot at Dahlia Hill in Midland, Michigan. Details on that garden planted and maintained by volunteers are at Dahlia Hill - unlike any other dahlia garden
The camera is a monopod-mounted K-S2. The last image was captured with a Lensbaby Sol 45. Others were captured with a Takumar-F 28-80 1:3.5-4.5. (Perhaps a Raynox 150 was added for one or more of the images.)
