    Post your best Squirrel shots



    Squirrels are pretty common stupid things that I tend to photograph when I'm bored. Anyone else?

    We call them possums over here in Australia. This took place a few yards from my back yard. It is a picture of a python magican. He is making a possum disappear. I had to re-locate the snake towards the end of this performance as I have little dogs about the same size as the possum. I rang a vet before I shifted the snake as I was concerned about the health and safety of the snake and for myself. The vet said it is very hard to get bitten by a snake with a possum hanging out of its mouth. Nature ya gotta love it.

    The possum body was about fifteen inches long. The blanket is what I rolled the snake on to to move him to another part of the yard.

    I'll agree....when I'm bored and need a prop....the squirrel is a willing subject.

    Nice red squirrel John....but what did you do in PP to make the 3200 ISO look this good? I rarely go above 1200 w/my 7D......

    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!

    Hey, Steve - Out of curiousity, what do you call what we consider "possum" then in your neck of the woods???

    Squirrels ...and chipmunks are always a great standby when there is nothing else available to shoot ...
