I placed a new bird feeder in my backyard on Sunday and by Monday there was all sorts of activity. Amongst the many visitors was a mother squirrel with her young offspring. The little one would run about and then run back to mother and tuck under her. Eventually he settled down under the feeder and started eating the seeds with mom. As soon as I saw them I thought they would be a perfect fit for the partners challenge. I fear that the photo may not truly capture the 'partnership' but if you saw these two frolicking around, there would be no doubt in your mind.

I have given 8 to this shot. Looks underrated by the voters to me. May be a better title may have convinced to the narrow minded voters.

I like this picture, the lighting is good, angle could be a little more interesting, and I like what you did with the borders, it makes it look like its supposed to be in a movie with widescreen.

Sorry, but the subject just is not compelling to me.

Cute! the DOF is excellent. I think I would have rather seen it without borders though.
