Just a quick post prompted by a Facebook memory from October 2012. I was picnicking with the kids at Dublin Zoo when this nursing Grey Squirrel popped up next to us. Fortunately the 100-400 lens was on the camera and I got a quick grab shot at ISO800, 285mm and a shutter speed that happened to be 1/50th of a second. There's no way I deserved such sharpness at that speed - I guess the image stabilization saved me along with the squirrel freezing for a second or two. I still really like this shot - so I'm giving it another twirl as it dates from before my Blog.
