Backyard Gray

We have a pretty hefty population of gray squirrels in our backyard with which I have a love/hate thing. The love part is photographing them. Here’s one of them hanging out in a tree.

Composition? Branches?

I like the tail up pose, you may reduce the overall brightness of squirrel and burn the branches.
If you like, you may include some more of the tree.
