Good Evening!

Had the chance to watch two squirrels today collecting and hiding nuts in my own backyard with the SL2 + 150-600mm Sigma DGDN HSM Sports:

So cute! Here in Florida squirrels are like rats with tails; big, gray, and ugly.

Are these pictures from the full file or already cropped? If this is the original view from 600mm I would do a strong crop from the big file to get a better look of the squirrels.

Very nice!

Are those walnuts that the squirrel is carrying?

Haha, that's sad. But we have invaders in Europe, grey squirrels who do not belong here and being bigger than our cute brown ones so that those little browns vanish.

Hi Reinhard!

About 80% of the original scene, those squirrels have been quite close.

That is really close, despite being cropped.
