Keeping a camera handy and ready-to-shoot is a great way to capture fleeting moments.
Today’s Catch: Albino Squirrel
Personally, I keep a camera charged and ready-to-go, sitting on the shelves next to my desk should something interesting happen by. Today’s Camera-at-the-ready is a Canon 40D with a 300 MM F4L IS lens. It is set for ISO 200 and F8 on Aperture Priority Mode. The camera is left on so that a quick press of the shutter will bring it to speed very quickly. With Autofocus active and Image Stabilization on, I am ready to quickly catch any critter than wanders by my office window.
Today, I caught an Albino Squirrel in the tree next to my mailbox. Camera in reach, I was able to grab a quick shot before he scampered into the spruce trees across the street. Having a camera at the ready means you will get the shot rather than fumbling through your bag and finding the shot has passed you by.
