It looks like you panned this shot. If you did, incredible would be an understatement. If you didn't pan, you'll have to settle for just incredible.

Giangiorgio Crisponi
Fantastica!! a very beautiful photo, excellent panning ciao Giangiorgio

really nice shot ! the background blure works very good

Ali Reza Zamli
Amazing yes, it looks like a panning shot from the bg blur and if so you have really panned it well. Excellent technique on such a small target....and an amazing picture nonetheless..

Kieran Cunningham
Fantastic Capture . Would have been nice if you got all of the shadow But still GREAT shot.

Little Speedster >> Love this. I am so impressed. Have been trying to catch a shot of the "little speedsters" on my own deck without success. They change direction & flash by at wharp speed. Excellent capture.

Michael Tommerup
Wowwowowowow. What a great photo, you can just feel the speed

Very nice capture, and he's very cute. I do think the background looks a little Photoshopped. Maybe use less blur while still adding a little for effect? (As is, even if the little guy is only 4" long, that would make the blur streaks at least 0.5", and the exposure was 1/2500. 1250 in/s... That would mean the guy was indeed moving quick - about 71 mph!!)

Frank Mueller
I would also guess that the blurr/panning effect was added in PS, but in my humble opinion it doesn't look photoshopped. At any rate, fantastic picture! I keep on watching the little things race around my backyard - usually with my dog at their heals - and I haven't even attempted a shot yet due to the mind boggling speed.

Julius Grocholski
I hate these animals!!!!! They wake me up at sunrise every morning because there is a tree outside my bedroom window and there is one that decides to chirp like it is on speed for about twenty minutes. By then I am woken up and cannot fall back asleep. I think I am going to shoot it [with a gun not a camera ;-) ] Nice shot by the way!. -jg

Ankur Thatai
beautiful Image... great detail/depth.

jacob smith
Awesome shot. Hope it wasn't photoshopped :) As for Julius G, wanting to shoot one, use the camera not a gun, animals are great subjects for pictures. You can learn a thing or two from Jody.

john hughes
Perfect.I almost thought that he (or she), was going to run across my desk.

Fantastic!!! My son and I howled with the look of sheer speed in this shot, Super Squirrel (yep, we know it is a chipmunk). Simply a fantastic photo!!!

Robert G.
This is a great capture Jody , but it looks like artifical BG , is it a composite since the background is not a natural settings ? could be a pet as well running on the living room carpet , I have wild chipmunks and squirrel running shots if we would like a look .Nice capture still but probley over rated if its a pet .

Alema Misilo
