This little guy popped out of his hole just as I stopped to take some pictures of some ducks. They were about 50yards away. He was only 3 yards. He won.

Great shots. You must have been very close to get that last shot. I always take a good look around when I'm taking some shots; often there's something just waiting for its picture to be taken.

Superb resolution.

Regards,

Tom, on Point Pelee, Canada

Thanks Tom,

I was very close, about 3 yards or less. I was using a Panasonic FZ20 and I was optically zooming in anywhere from 8X to 12x. I think the last shot of the head was a digital zoom of 18x or 24X. But, He was so still and I was so close it was really fun to shoot the pics.
