    Fun with a hawk and an adrenaline junky squirrel

    So there were 4 attacks. Foggy morning looking at my back yard (fence is for the grandchild - there is a lake in the back). The first I was drinking my coffee with no camera, the 2nd completely out of focus and around the tree, the third you see below, the last was away and through the trees w/o no shots worthwhile. This isn't all that art worthy - really some fun and asking for advice.

    The focus is off - not sure why, it was in servo mode, focus priority, case mode 2, All sensors - I switched to the center 9 later. Would like suggestions on how to get the focus right on this type of shooting.

    This the 2nd taunt by the squirrel - first resulted in a round the tree attack
