They are amazing creatures and you did a fantastic job of freezing the action. I have tried several times to get a decent shot but to my dismay, it looks like I may have to wait another season.

Thanks, Barracuba and Vanessa for your comments. These shots were actually taken from inside the house, behind a window, reason why the image is a bit foggy andit prevented me fromchoosing ahigher speed w/o having to place the camera on a tripod.

Great shots Tullio.

I think you have something confused. Faster (higher shutter speed) shots do not require a tripod. It is slow shutter speeds that require a tripod.

Thanks, Cal. I certainly got confused. What I meant to say was that the (tinted) window cut the amount of light and increasing the shutter speed would under expose the image. Now, from your previous comments, I could have increased the ISO. I guess I really dislike noise, reason why I usually set the ISO to its lowest value and never think about increasing it. But,since noise can be easilyreduced by Neatimage, I should not be so paranoid about it!
