Went out for another 10 miles in on-and-off rain today until the sun went down. Didn't even hear so much as an owl hoot the entire time – I was really hoping to find a new screech owl family due to the time of year – tough luck of the draw this time. I've had a lifelong hatred for armadillos, but I couldn't help but follow this guy around for a little while:

Good shot. I'm curious, why would you hate Armadillos? Is it the damage caused by the holes they dig?

Haha! Perhaps "lifelong" was a bit too far-reaching. In general, they'll just dig some holes around your yard and cause a bit of trouble if you ever let your dog outside at night. But in my case, I've been at odds with one particular big guy who lives in the woods behind my house who, for the better part of two years (since I moved in,) has been taunting me relentlessly. Unlike most armadillos who will just dig up a few 1-3" holes near the edge of your yard a few times a week, this guy will literally dig a half dozen 8-10" deep holes right in the middle of my yard each and every night during his active season. I've tried everything in the books to capture him, but he just won't be fooled. Traps, sprays, extra dog poop... you name it, I've tried it. Even my dog has given up trying to get him after a few solid mouth-fulls of this guy's sharp, scaly tail. The real kicker is that he somehow seems to know exactly when he has an opportunity to screw with me. The only times I've had the chance to get close enough to physically do anything – at this point I'd even consider strangling him with bare hands – have been in the wee hours of the morning when I'm rushing to catch a flight. Literally three time now, I've been loading up the car in the driveway and he just happens to casually waltz by at the edge of the yard in full view.

He also plants distractions on occasion. Twice now, I've heard rustling right outside of my bedroom window in the middle of the night. Sure that it's him, I rush outside to take care of business only to find a mindless little turtle trying to find its way back to the lake. I'm convinced the turtle is in cahoots with my nemisis....

Although, I suppose if I must have an arch nemesis, a relatively small and prehistoric armored jerk isn't the worst that I could get. :lol:

Those things always make me think of an overgrown woodlouse. :-)

Lol! Amazing, and to think I was bothered by squirrels on my bird feeders! I reckon most people in the UK would see Armadillos as cute and rarely seen. How different in reality!

BOY! All these great shots in here, you people are really making me think about the 7D ll. I have been mulling over the idea of a new FF to go with my 7D, I rented a 6D last week and really love the high ISO capability and low light focus, but REALLY missed the frames/second of the 7D. The 5D lll is still out of my price range so now I have a real dilemma. Keep up the great shots, love seeing them.

I had 5 awesome years with my 7D and I would have 0 issues if I had to back to it. The only real difference with the 7DII is AF acquisition is a bit faster and zone works much better.

Outside of that there is no reason the 7D can't get produce equal quality images. 90% of that happens behind the camera. That being said it is always fun to get a new toy. I did hit a road bump at the start and at one point was very, very sorry I had sold my 7D.

Sometimes it is the only thing that keeps old people going :p. I really appreciate the zone capabilities. I was surprised how well it did isolate and track the closest object. After shooting in single/expanded for so many years I had a blast in zone a few weeks ago. It was something new to try out.

I'm going to continue to goof around with zone, etc. If I need the money shot I will always go back to single/expanded.
