You've all seen them.

They leap and bounce about all over the place - seemingly never ever still for long enough to draw breath.

I followed this one for ages across the flagstones in the back garden today until it stopped doing a tigger impression for a brief enough moment to get a couple of frames fired off.

It seems to leaning forward, head to the floor more than its ass. I wonder if it actually eating or something - I have no idea if it was, cos I figure they would eat vegetable matter, but there may have been something tiny and edible there anyway. More likely the camera angle coming in above and to the side perhaps.

pretty good, I presume you had extension tubes or this is a heavy crop?
