Sniffing out something new?


This and the next few photos were taken with a 300mm telephoto. (Borrowed). I was worried about being able to hold the camera steady enough. I must say I found this lens easier to use than my regular kit lens, and I only lost two photos because of camera shake. This lens seemed very easy to focus - either manually or with autofocus as it gave me a very bright image in the D-70 (Nikon) viewfinder.

I'd love to know what is in your food selection for the grey squirrel! They are quite common here in England and make wonderful duck quacking noises. They are however shy when they do venture into the garden - and are best enticed with hazel nuts on the top of wooden fences ... so how are you managing to get this one to the table?
