Yeah, I wanted to capture some of the detail of the tree without cranking the ISO up too high, so my shutter speed suffered.

Maybe I'll head back out in the woods today and try a wider aperature f/4.0 as you suggested.  I was hoping to salvage these shots though.

I took  the following two photos yesterday.  The lighting wasn't very good and I couldn't get as close to the subject as I wanted.  I like the fact that I was able to capture the squirrel eating in it's natural habitat, so I'm looking for some tips on how I can improve the look of the photos.  Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Animal Kingdom / My first attempt at stop action (hummingbirds)

So I grabbed my 7D mounted with a 70-200 f/4 IS and sat on stool on my sister's deck and waited for something to visit her feeders.  She mentioned that hummingbird's frequented them several times a day.

I didn't have much faith that I was going to see one and if I did that the photos would turn out any good.  Well, sure enough one visited after only about 20 minutes.  I took five photos.  Here are three that I was pretty happy with.  I know the composition isn't the greatest, but I think I did a pretty good job at freezing the action in two of them.







They are really pretty birds, aren't they?

Here's a new one from yesterday.  I got a little wet getting this shot, but I like the result.

OK, I'll try that.  On my 7D, I can have the dial turned to C1 C2 C3 while programming them and the aperature and shutter speed are still selectable.  Perhaps the 7D's C#'s were pre-progammed in manual mode.

Technical Support / Confused by 5DM3 C1 C2 C3 settings
« on: August 10, 2012, 10:40:10 AM »
This may be a dumb question, but I'm going to ask anyway.  I recently purchased a 5DM3 and while attempting to set up my C1 C2 C3 setting this morning, I noticed that the aperature and/or shutter speed were not selectable.  What am I doing wrong?  Maybe I need to read the manual?  ???

Thanks,
Mike

Has anyone tried using Focal after the upgrade?

Not sure what kind of frog this is.  I found him out in the woods today and he was kind enough to pose for a few photos.  He even gave me time to setup a tripod.  BONUS!

Nice shots!  How about some toads too?

The place where a shot these is a wooded area in Wisconsin that has a spring fed creek running through it.  As you go deeper in the woods, rock bluffs surround you on all three sides and there's a small waterfall where the trail ends.  It's awesome, there are frogs everywhere.
