FZ200 - More Squirrels
Mar 11, 2014

With a little break in the weather, the squirrels have come out.  Shot these from my third floor deck in my condo.

Full zoom.  Nice of him to pose like that.

Searching for another acorn

Found it!

Had an odd experience when I got the camera out and started taking these shots.  THe squirrel was up in a tree when I first saw him and fairly distant.  So I got out the FZ200, mounted the hood, turned on the camera, and immediately went to full zoom (600 mm).  The camera refused to focus!!!  I backed off on the zoom a little, to maybe 500 mm and the AF locked right on.  When I went back to full zoom, the AF was OK.  This occurred a couple of times on our cruise where it refused to focus at full zoom right after turn on.  It has not occurred at other zoom settings.
