Almost got Otis's Canadian cousin for ya Rupert. Focus , Focus . breath then snap shutter release - since I had no peanuts or offerings of any kind the little fellow patiently let me set up for the shot and then took off like a bat out of hell just before shutter release 1/180s nowhere near quick enough On this last trip I did get some moose and elk and caribou but no good shots of squirrels

Thanks Bob - Rupert was recently banned - I dont' know why or for how long - I hope not forever I will miss him and his craziness and constant squirrel posts ...
