the huge zoom on the P850 was ALOT of help.

I took that shot from inside my house, from about 30 feet away.

Wow - great shots! Did you use the burst mode or was that in regular single shot mode? I tried taking pictures of squirrels at the park, but they kept moving too quickly for me. I didn't think about using the burst mode til afterwards.

thanks for the good comments, glad u like.

Burst is nice, definitely.
Makes it easy to get moving subjects.

I believe one shot was a burst, and the other was not.

Mr. Squirrel found a friend

shot from same place, inside house, 30 feet away, with P850
it's alittle out of focus since it was snowing
(should have used "center" focus)

Hey B. Dawg

A tip for squirrel and or bird shots.



Pick a good branch with a background you like for your subject

Smear some peanut butter on the branch or bark of tree

Try to not make it look too much like a gob of peanut butter (or a bear making a pit stop)

Stay a good distance away and wait

And if you like make a camo-blind. Cut the sides of a burlap sack and hang it with cloths pins from a branch or awning etc, and have a slit cut for your camera to poke through and keep still/quiet.

BiLL
