Give us, this day.......

By paulbroad
A little thief in action. My fishing mate had a French bread stick on his platform. Suddenly this chap decided it was dinner time and took no notice of us, just tucked in. I grabbed my camera and shot quite a few images. Light was low, so flash fill and not much depth of field.

EOS 7D with 150mm Sigma EX Macro and Sigma 530 Super flash with diffuser. 1/150 @ f8 at ISO400. Camera on monopod for stability. Some burning in and some crumbs cloned out. Smart sharpen in CS3.

Great opportunistic shot. Must have been hungry to hang around for the shot.

This is the first one I picked up form the gallery... Grin I have never seen anything like are really quick, actually amazingly quick...But fishing with 7D? I guess that you were going to photograph the big fish, unfortunately, they are the ones always run away...Grin
Great shot, really. Fantastically fast reaction.

He actually stopped here, Jas. Didn't seem afraid at all. By the way, anyone think this is a Vole rather than a mouse? ears very small and tight to head.
