Squirrel No. 12
GRAY SQUIRREL IN THE SNOW, EVANSTON, ILLINOIS, DECEMBER 22, 2009
SMC Pentax-DA 50-200 at 200mm
1/125 sec. f8
I've started baiting our backyard deck railing every day with a small pile of birdseed about eight feet away from the back room window, and the scheme is working. Every day a squirrel (I think it's the same one) arrives, chases away the sparrows, and feasts on the bribe while I snap his photo from inside the window. The inexpensive Pentax kit short telephoto zoom lens does a fine job if stopped down sufficiently.
