    - - a dark object under one of the cherry trees. I grabbed my G1 with a Sears 135/2.8 mounted & went out into the yard. As soon as it saw me approaching it took off towards the fence & before going through it turned to look back at me & I got this shot @ ISO 200 & the lens wide open .

    It went a ways over in the property next door & up a tree where it looked back @ me again. I upped the ISO to 400, closed the lens to f5.6 & added 1/3 exposure compensation due to the back lighting for this shot.

    Both pics are cropped quite a bit as the coon was a good distance away.

    I did move the hose just this morning, as it was in my way & I tossed it over a branch in a apple tree as you see it. :(

    Cute critter, which do you prefer, the coon or the skunk from a few days ago?
    As far as the pics go, good job for being on the go after him/her. The 2nd pic has bluish tints on the limbs. That hose really hates you.

    How I wish my "wow, there's wildlife in my garden"-pics came out this sharp ... often I'm in such a hurry to try and capture flighty wildlife (which mostly I see in poor light conditions only, on top of it all) that my photos turn out all bloopers! Wrong focus, shake and whatnot... So you're good at chasing the wildlife that comes "for a visit" with your camera!
