First time I have seen a groundhog. This crittur was about 60cm tall, guarding his burrow. With 560mm on the 7DII, I didn't need to get close to fill the frame.

Hi DominoDude.
Very nice shot, love the symmetry of the ripples, if I had to find a fault it would be the DOF is too shallow, farthest side of the toad is in the bokeh. I realise this may be because of poor light to keep the ISO down.
All in all a fine shot, I started to wonder if most of my shots were just crap, no views  :'( then I realised that there are way more photos out there than there are people to look at them,  :) you have to entice people to your shots, tags seem to help as I had one of my worst shots commented on within minutes of uploading.

Cheers, Graham.

Thanks for the good and constructive feedback, Graham! *bows humbly*

You're not forgotten. I will return with more later on - I'm having a bit of a time management issue right now...
But in short, you're right about the DOF, it's a tad on the thin side.

I don't generally get to see many animals but last week ....

I had to "track" this youngster up from my garden, past the house and front door and shop and finally I persuaded him to pose "in the wild".  Too close to sundown for lower ISO.

Hi Domino Dude.
I would not generally offer criticism, constructive or otherwise, without it being requested. I'm not that great a photographer and those that live in glasshouses shouldn't throw stones!  ;D
I always try to offer thoughtful comments towards the great photographers here, I like to see your shots that I might perhaps learn something from them or get an idea for a shot.

Thanks to all who post.

Cheers, Graham.

Went to Glacier National Park a couple weeks ago.  It was pretty smokey but because of that, the park was pretty empty.  The only wild life I saw was two black bears.  Canon 5d MKii Tamron 150-600mm
