I got the 100-400 L yesterday and caught this guy on my deck this morning. I'm not so sure he likes the size of the thing I'm pointing at him.

IMAGE: http://www.itsanadventure.com/postimages/squirrel.jpg

400mm at 12 feet doesn't have much DoF. This was at 5.6 allowing hand-held at 1/90. No crop, but it needed some sharpening. Tomorrow I'll try flash with for some more DoF.

You can take my 100-400 L away when you pry it from my cold, dead fingers.

Ian, please note that I got the front of him. This is the end you're supposed to shoot. :)

Yeah, but where are his legs? He does have a pair, doesn't he? Or did he suffer the same fate as Gitzo? :lol:
