i'm a little scared to see what this "project" will be if this is one of the included shot.. but anyways, the first one should work for your project pretty well... please, keep us up to date on this project.... hehe...

Ya, I know. The only time I get to see the little buggers is after they've bit the dust. I cringe a bit to say this but even in death they are quite a nice looking critter. As we are all reluctant to risk criticism and out of repect for the newly deceased, we usually just dispose of the remains and go about our business. Flip side of the coin, we often see game hunters posing for pictures with their kill, proud of the "trophy" they've hunted. From time to time I find mice in traps I put out up at the cabin, and they really are cute little creatures. (some with deadly viral buggies in the droppings however) Too bad it's the only time I come across them. Best regards,

I've been thinking about this shot and was wondering if I should have increased the depth of field on the first shot so the whole vole was in focus. I shot in macro mode because I was about a foot away from it. I had a little trouble focusing as it was, maybe because it was dark where the ledge was. :? I forget how to increase DOF anyway. :shock: I gotta start having a better memory.:-)

to increase dof,stop down your aperture (so make it a higher number, i.e f8 instead of f4)

Thanks Dustin. That's what always messed me up in my photography class in college. It being the opposite of what I though it should logically be. :-)
