i agree, those spots bother me too. i was just being lazy not to setup my backdrop. i used a white wall as the background which has marks on it. i tried blurring them out, but I guess it didnt work all that well.

as far as details. i spent some time in photoshop to bring them out.

Flying Squirrel

Mine for today... A flying squirrel thinking about making a run for some peanut butter set out on a plate a few feet away. Shot handheld at ISO 3600, 1/30th of a second, 200mm at f2.8.

Is that an artifact of some kind? Intentional?

Not guilty, sir. The shepherds dye their sheep; that's how they recognise their own sheep!

Technicolor sheep as it were!

Annoyed at myself for bad in camera cropping on this one.

You're usually on a first name basis with the sheep you photograph. What's wrong with that one. Or, could it just be anti-social?

Brilliantly timed.

Bee shoot query

We are having a scorcher here today, well over the old century for you folks still on Fahrenheit. The bees are flocking to one of the fountains in our yard as you can see below.

I have a query for those knowledgable souls that visit here if I can, regarding lens choice for this shot in the future. My kit is limited in regard of lenses, just the 18-55mm and 55-250mm f/4's and a 50mm f/1.8. I was in aperture priority mode at f/18 to get as many of them in focus as I could. I used the 55-250mm for this shot in the shade as I could focus in on these guys without peeving them off, but as a consequence, the ISO rose to 3200, with a shutter speed of 1/40th of a second. Compared to my T3 the noise levels on the 60D are sort of acceptable to me at this ISO level, for web sharing only and no larger than 1024 pixels wide.

So, my query is in regard of the setup I used. How else could I possibly get better results with my kit? Should I have grabbed the 50mm f/1.8 prime and just stuck the tripod right in there really close?

I am grabbing a 17-40 f/4 L in a couple of days time, would that have worked any better? Or would I need to be even closer with that than the 50mm? I know it's exponentially better IQ than what I used, would that alone lower the noise somewhat at this high an ISO?

Great shot. What sort of time did you take this? It has a really nice early morning feel for me.
