    Back after a gap of 6 yrs. Never used the 1100D as much as I'd planned so got rid and moved on with a Nikon Coolpix for any online stuff the phone wouldn't do.

    A month ago the garden finally gained a squirrel, but the little bugger's a quick bugger and the Coolpix was so slow the only way I'd get a shot of the squirrel with it was if I'd had it stuffed.
    eBay and a replacement 1100D, 75-300 and a 35-135 that only works from 70mm up but it's all my preferred seller had as a quick stopgap until I can get something better.
    So until I get a tripod (and a slower squirrel) I can at least get some shots again.

    This was the sight that greeted me before the morning coffee.




    Totally in awe of those of you that manage to get wildlife pics.

    WOW. love those. especially the bottom one.
    I'm still trying to attract birds into my garden, but with several neighbours cats on the prowl, the birds don't seem tempted by my offerings.

    Thanks for the comments.

    On the fourth day of Christmas, my true love sent to me..... an extra squirrel.
    Just need them to send me a reminder to change the ISO after doing the Christmas lights shots. [​IMG]

    Like you I've been absent from the forum for a little while (no special reason). Squirrels are right little buggers but great fun to photograph. These two pics were from May 2011, in my garden when one regular visitor at the time successfully unhitched the fat ball holder!

    Canon 5D MkII, f/4, 1/160s ISO-400

    Canon 5D MkII, f/4, 1/200s, ISO-400

    Can't remember which lens unfortunately .. probably EF 100-400 (but just possibly EF 70-200 f2.8L)

    The EXIF data will tell you.

    Thanks Pete, but when I right clicked the file and searched in Properties>Data, it only shows me the exposure I used but not the lens. Is Properties>Data the same thing as Exif Data? If yes, where do I find the missing info? This time I actually resorted to re-opening the raw file in PS and was able to see there that I was using my 70-200 f/2.8, but that's the only place I've seen that specific info.

    The lens info. is usually part of the image file descriptive data. I put everything in Lightroom so that’s where I see it, before that, and for Canon, DPP. I’d suppose most image viewers would have an option to show it. Of the utilities EXIF viewer is well known but I don’t use it.

    Thanks again Pete. We hear of photographers concealing or deleting the Exif data when posting a photograph on a public forum. Personally I don't think I'm that bothered, but how is this done in practice, please?

    In Canon DPP there is an option in the Convert and save dialogue under Shooting Info setting. Most editing software will have an option to include or exclude data when you save/export the file and want it a different format or size.
