yesterday morning while I was gardening I had a delightful little visitor.

the baby hedgehog ran towards me and was very healthy and bright,

so just gave him some of my cats dried food and a drink of water,
when I moved him he squealed really loudly,
so he was well, but very young,
anyway I decided to leave him to go on his way when he was ready
he stayed about the garden for about 20 mins and then wondered off.
I do hope he is ok.GrinGrinGrinGrin

I will upload a couple more,
you can see his little face well, and he does look like a hog lol


ooops just see I can't upload a variant at the moment my e 2 has run out

yes Barbara he is small but I thought it would stress him too much to try to keep him in a box.

especially as there is a lot of winter to come yet maybe his mum was around

Aw, what a sweetie. Not sure what to do with hedgehogs but there's lots on the internet. The weather's so mild for the time of year I fear that lots of little'uns which should be hibernating are still around, but I don't really know.

I don't really know your camera but you've left in on Program so it should sort itself out.

What a thoroughly delightful encounter you had! Awww...so lucky SmileSmile

What help do you mean? You mean what settings to use? Program Mode is fine for this. Especially with such even light...so there would be no need to fiddle with EV, etc.

You needed a faster shutter speed for a moving animal, Maureen. His face is blurred because he was moving.
You can get a faster shutter speed by using a larger aperture, increasing the ISO, or using flash to freeze any movement.
The bigger the denominator the faster the speed, i.e. 1/1000 is much faster than 1/30.
In most cases, you will probably just need to be be using shutter speeds of 1/60th of a second or faster. This is because anything slower than this is very difficult to use without getting camera shake.
Should you use Aperture or Shutter Priority? In a nutshell, the aperture controls the depth of field in an image and the shutter speed controls how movement is recorded. Not sure which shooting mode to go for? Decide which of those two things you want to keep most control over in your shot and thatís the priority option to go for.
In Aperture Priority mode you set the aperture and the camera makes a decision about what shutter speed is appropriate in the conditions that you are shooting in.
In Shutter Priority Mode, you choose the shutter speed that you wish to shoot at, and let the camera make a decision about what aperture to select to give a well exposed shot.
Most people switch to shutter priority mode when they want more control over how to photograph a moving subject.

There are some excellent tutorials and information on this site, Maureen, and a lot more if you Google for it.
Find some tutorials for beginners if you feel that you need to get your head around your camera settings, then move on from there.
Don't get too bogged down with technicalities, practice is the best way to learn, checking your results against your settings, and getting to know which worked and which didn't.

Pamela.

thank you Pamela
that is a lot of info for me to work on,
now the winter is coming I think I will try to study these things a bit
I have to admit I just use the idiot proof settings,
when I look at your lovely photos I start to realise just how much there is to learn,
do you use a tripod ?

Not as much as I should, Maureen.
I generally photograph flowers outside, in the garden, when the light is good, so usually no need for a tripod.
If I set them up indoors, then I will use one.
I will only carry my tripod on days out if I'm going inside a building. The shutter speeds will usually be too long for hand-holding.
Pamela.
