    Thanks guys,

    For some reason, the combination of the 50-200 and the ec 14 exhibits a goofy bokeh when the background consists of mainly thin, lightly colored intertwining lines... it could be photoshopped but it's not nearly as objectionable when printed

    This was shot at almost the same time and settings, a little less light in the shade but the background appears normal.



    Cheers, Don

    These are really lovely images - not just well photographed - but nice poses from our Squirrel friend too.

    Thanks Geoff. It's taken me five years to get them to trust me, but now they will sit on my lap for a few hazelnuts. It's such a priviledge to get so close to a wild animal, and they are so funny to watch.

    Well if there were a green smiley available I would use it here!!
    I am so envious!!
    That is so cool though, to get them to trust you - you must be
    very calm and gentle with them
    whereabouts are you?

    I'm on the Isle of Wight. It just takes patience. Sometimes I can wait for hours and see nothing. Squirrels are like cats - they please themsleves.
