Default Some Animals of Jasper & Banff National Parks

Here are some of the snaps I took with my new 5700 on my recent travels around the rockies... (mind you, I had only been using this camera for 2-3 days prior to some of these shots)

the pictures are nicely done especially since you've had the camera only a few days.
However for the numerically challenged, what's a "5700?"

Numbers 3 and 5 are especially nice. In particular, those red squirrels are hard ones to get pictures of because they're such feisty, quick little things.

One suggestion: back off a little either physically or with your zoom so you don't cut off the feet when doing a full-body shot.

Thanks Barbara,

After reading your suggestion, and going over some of my pics, I see exactly what you mean. I guess showing the entire subject gives it a bit more depth, and allows for more in post editing...

Thank you for the great heads up...

Great shots, I agree on the feet.
Also take into account that if you are not watching through the lens you could see the feet, but on the picture they are gone.

Greetings,
Frank
