I don't normally do wildlife photography. I just don't have the patience for it. But I couldn't resist this one. This squirrel was a regular visitor to our garden and bird table. And as you can see she got pretty ingenious at finding ways to get at the nuts.

Photographically it's not a brilliant shot. 70-300mm lens, at 240mm. ISO bumped up to 320 so that I could get a fast enough shutter to handhold. (1/200s). Aperture was f/5.6 as wide as I can get with the lens to do my best to blur the background as much as possible. The only other thing I did was to pump in a -1 Ev exposure compensation to prevent the white bits of fur from burning out.
