Brought this guy indoors (it was snowing outside!), with some leaves, dirt, and wood bark, and took his photo. Quite a lively fellow after he warmed up...TOO lively. ISO 1600 at F2.8 was still nearly not fast enough to catch a decent shot. I know, I know...could have put him in the freezer...that just seems mean. Had to focus in anticipation and track him some with the camera. I suppose flash would've helped. One of these days I'll have to figure out the art of flash photography. :-)
Oh, BTW - If you haven't figured out by now, I didn't shoot this at the last minute (I was kidding in the forum thread). :-P
