I took this shot because I want to showcase the red squirrel expression when they leap through the air I made a natural jumping setup for the red squirrels I so they have to jump from a branch to another branch walnuts were used to get the attention of the squirrel placed on a point where they needed to land. It's very unique to see the squirrel jumping back with the walnut in his mouth. I placed a small branch between the jumping setup to get my focus manual in the middle of the jump. The shot was made with a Nikon Z6II Lens Used Sigma 150-600mm f/5-6.3 Contemporary Focal Distance 600 mm
