Excellent stuff :thumbup:

I've got quite a few pics of this little fella who seems to enjoy breakfast in our garden most mornings:

Might be helpful (to me at least) if you could post the equipment and settings you used to capture your shots, at least then I might know if I can do similar.

Thanks Chris

For my pic I used a Fuji S4240 bridge camera, and the photo was taken through my kitchen window on the fully automatic setting, simply zoomed in to fill the frame (the squirrel was approx 15 feet away). The camera has got loads of manual settings, but I don't bother getting bogged down with them... :lol: For what it's worth, I really recommend this camera.

I've copied the following details from the file properties, not sure if it will help:

FUJIFILM FinePix S4240,

f/5.9,

exposure time 1/70 sec,

ISO-800,

focal length 103mm,

4288x3216 pixels.

:D

Welcome to the forum! Some great pics there! Can I ask you to seek out the Bug Photos thread...one of my favourites, and the one I post mostly in. Unfortunately, due to Photobucket's new policy of refusing 3rd party hosting on its basic accounts, a lot of the earlier pics have been replaced with their warning picture. Thankfully, I downloaded all my albums before they were lost, and am slowly rebuilding the thread with the saved pics. The last couple of pages should be OK.:thumbsup:

Don't believe everything on the internet. We went all the way to Oz and never even saw a kangaroo never mind a Croc or a Great White !! We did see some Koala Bears after we paid to get in.

:biggrin:

This is as close to wildlife as we get to here.

Won't argue with you there! I had seen one croc on one river up in the Northern Territories before my last trip. And on the creek we went to where I took the pic of the croc above, we saw three others in a short space of time. Previously, I had been loads of places where crocs were expected and there were none!

Kangaroos and wallaby's are practically tame in some suburban / parks, which isn't the same as seeing them in the wild. The only place I did that was in the outback. They even gather on the driving range my brother in law uses. When I went, I was amazed at the way they ignored all the golf balls pinging around! 'Cuddle a koala' places seem everywhere now but I have also seen them in the wild!
