Subject: [Leica] IMG: Camera Alert in Squirrel Land

Since focusing is difficult with non-automated lenses on the E-510, I went 
back to the 14-54 2.8-3.5 Oly lens and experimented with ISO 800 outdoors.  
The squirrels know that I sometimes provide goodies, but are very alert when 
I am around.  This fellow came within 10 or 12 feet, but never took his eye 
off of the camera.

Mark, IS was on, and helped, because the squirrel stood still for his 
portrait.  Cropping was done from a 100% image, so the detail may be 
depreciated a little, but it is good enough for the net.

C&C appreciated.
