    I've noticed that a few times with your 7D, John! I would never be able to shoot at 3200 ISO and expect to get a keeper!

    Well, I did...literally nothing. [:P]


    The shot was from the days when I was still shooting JPG, and except for cropping to an 8x10 ratio for printing, it's straight from the camera. I think the shot works partly because of the (lack of) background color. But, usually ISO 3200 is noisier because when you 'need' to go there, lighting is already poor. In this case, though, lighting was not too bad. Iwas standing on that bridge waiting to shoot birds flying by, so I had it set to M mode with 1/1000 s, f/6.3, and Auto ISO, and I looked down to see the red squirrel running across the railing and grabbed a couple of shots without changing the settings. Shot noise was (unintentionally) minimized because the shutter speed was pretty high, which I think mostly accounts for why this shot looks better than you'd expect for a 7D at ISO 3200.

    DavidEccleston - Those black squirrels bring me back to my college days at Kent State. Campus was overrun with those guys. I remember having a great picture of one eating a french fry. Unfortunately, all my pictures of the black squirrels were with film, and I have no clue where that film is anymore.


    Steve - Is that a Diamond Python?

    Here are some of my Squirrel pictures taken at a wildlife sanctuary. They model for the camera and in return only ask for a few peanuts.





    Ready Set






    And then of course I have those in my back yard that believe they are birds.

    @Denise- we have gliders, which glide between trees, around 200-400 mm long, with a membrane stretching between elbow and ankle. We have bandicoots, which are big rat looking things about 400mm long. And a whole heap of different possums from 200-500mm long. No squirrels, but there is something called a squirrel glider.


    @dsiegel- The snake is a common carpet python, non-venomous, constricts and suffocates its prey.Gets to over 3 m long that one was just over 2m. We had one in the roof of our home through winter, but its gone now. Don't know where it went.


    All the other animals are the same. Except for these guys.. Could be a gum tree squirrel...nah

    Ohh and then there's the platypus, nobody knows what's going on with that thing.
