I was down by our local water front trail in Port Hope again with the intention of catching a particular Squirrel. He has been taking all the bird seed people have been putting out, but he was a no show this morning. I actually got a good shot of a bird while I was waiting. These guys are very difficult to photograph as they never sit still for more then a second. With the g12's 1+ second focus lock time, I could never get a shot. I decided to pre-focus on the rail and switch to manual focus. I used F8 to increase DOF, to ensure a good focus, but at ISO 100 I also needed to use fill flash, or I couldn't stop the motion as they move way to much. I was good practice finding a method that would work with the tool I had to use. Enjoy :-)
