The low sun illuminates the tail of this red squirrel.
I like to play with low light, and back-lit wildlife portraits, and I was relying on a few things to come together for this shot to happen. By catching the squirrel with the light behind it, and underexposing my shot, I was able to throw the background into shadow, and retain the sunlit highlights.
