Lens: SMC-A 70-210mm Camera: K20D Photo Location: WI 
Posted By: PPPPPP42, 02-17-2012, 10:31 PM

Still fighting with getting the camera to stop messing up the exposure and color so these look a bit off to me even after some sloppy post processing.
I will be shooting in raw as soon as I get something that works with DNG so that I can isolate the issue to colors or exposure. Also this lens has a nasty habit of back focusing (focusing on stuff behind the target is back focusing right?) and I don't have the Katzeye here yet so I lost a ton of other shots.

Apparently albino squirrels are somewhat common in this particular area, this one was really hard to get a shot of, this was the best I could manage, half in shade. The other ones are the same red squirrel twice, it took a nap in the sun and then went to eat some crushed corn and seed.
