Right Squirrel, Wrong Lens

I think this would have been a much better picture if I had my 28-135 lens on instead of a 50mm.  In this case, it would have been better to be able to get closer.  When I went to change my lens, the squirrel moved on.

Cute pose though…



When Bird Cam becomes…

Squirrel Cam…

ISO 640 127mm f5.6 1/6 tripod

So, this was the clearest shot this morning, but you can see a bit of blur of motion on the back of the squirrel.  I really was trying to freeze the motion in this case.  This was shot in Av mode.  Tomorrow, I will start in Tv mode 1/20 and go from there.

Here is an odd shot from this morning.  Birds, with a shutter speed that is too slow.

ISO 640 127mm f/7.1 1/4

Not too many two-headed birds flitting around usually.
