Default Just Squirreling around campus today...

I was walking through the campus of a local university today when I happened upon this little guy running around with a treat in his mouth. He climbed what he considered a safe distance away from my grasp, but he certainly wasn't safe from a shot or four from my beautiful little brand new Panasonic FZ1's Leica 12x IS zoom lens. Resized and compressed to save bandwidth. All taken at full telephoto hand held and at ISO-50. Any suggestions or criticisms are appreciated. WIsh I had gotten all of them at the f/2.8 and 1/60 setting. Guess that's what I get for using the auto mode.

F/3.2
1/60 sec.


F/2.8
1/80 sec.


F/2.8

the face the squirrel made for you in the last one is great! and the first is SOO clear and sharp

because of the low ISO you had to use a longer shutter speed....meaning that little guy had to stay still for longer for it to be focused.....which worked out ok here.....but wouldn't so much on some animals....
just a thought

nice shots

Thanks for the feedback. All my shots were with the cemera setting the exposure. Feedback like that is what I love to hear, so maybe next time I know how to better capture the shot.

The first pic was right after he ran up the free. The second shot he felt comfortable and decided to start eating. The third shot was right after I tried a shot with flash and I got his attention. The last shot was as if he knew I was taking a picture and decided to pose for me. I love the squirrel smile!

glad i could help
you did a great job of placing the focus.....the 2nd and 3rd are a little soft....but that is cuz of movement....so the higher shutter would help that
