I was out in the rain for a while today and got this guy ...

Squirrel hiding behind two spruce branches. Small area focus.

I tried the AF-S + Manual Assist on some grackles but it is very sensitive on long shots, eh? I need practice.

Got a bit closer to the Sandhills:

120 meters. If I can get into 100 meters in good light I hope to get a "proper" photograph!

In the meantime I can practice on this sort of stuff in the rain ....

A week of wet windy wx is forecast. Difficult to get those birdies before they move off to their nests. But we can be thankful that we are NOT getting the catastrophic wx that our friends in the SE USA are getting.


Tom, you are having some problems with white balance.  The shot of the Red squirrel is way too blue (cold) & the shot of the Sandhill likewise.

Try to get the focus box on the eyes if possible, methinks the focus falls behind the eyes on the squirrel.

The wood is clear between the knots.
