    I spotted something green in a crack in an apple tree. It is a very dull day & I do not use flash on wildlife. This little guy is only about an inch & a quarter long as it sits.

    if it really is a dull day, mind sharing with me how you get the shot so clear? when i try to take any picture on a darker day, picture comes out blurry because my hand shakes. and i can never get that close to any wildlife... they'd run away, but maybe that's because i tried to take picture of a bird.

    Oh, I had some blurry ones! This guy was not going anywhere as it was cold out so I got to try different apertures & ISO's. I got three acceptable pics out of eight. :wink:

    Since this little guy was tucked into a crack offering a small target to get a focus I tried to keep a small aperture to maximise the DoF but the shutter speeds were very slow. I increased the ISO but still slow shutter speeds so I had to open the aperture up more. This hand held shot was :
    ISO - 400
    f - 5.6
    t - 1/20
