I had enormous fun taking photographs for this challenge: On Thursday I spent hours walking around the woods, got up very early both Thursday and Friday mornings and sat on the woodland floor for two hours before work, taking photographs of squirrels, birds and a rabbit. I actually took this one on Sunday morning during a morning walk around a local lake, so could have saved myself those cold damp sessions - but I wouldn't have missed them for anything, and I do know now that I want to save up for a fast long telephoto lens - so should it be the Canon EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS or the Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS USM and an extender for the extra reach?
