Airborne Red Squirrel 'en route' to cache! Taken early autumn last year. Due to the speed needed and the extremely high iso also needed, I was fairly pleased with the result! I started at 2500sec - blurred, then 3200sec - blurred, then 4000sec - blurred eventually needed 8000sec with 4000 iso! Just glad a 'Red' kept coming back.

Many thanks for your votes, comments and user awards there greatly appreciated.

Will catch up with everyone's images later in the day

How you managed to focus so accurately on this fast moving subject is beyond me.
But with wide aperture and very short exposure you have captured excellent detail and frozen the action completely.
Reckon this shot deserves a host of awards, and here's mine.
