Fearless is about 7 months old now, and I’m pretty sure she’s is a girl. She is the image of her father, Mr Smooshy, previously known as FatBabyBum.
These possum shots are taken with my camera on auto mode, obviously with flash, and a torch in the other hand, so that the camera can see something before it makes a decision. I make a rough guess about focus, point the torch and the camera and the same time, and see how it works. I take a lot of really crap shots!!!
The possums don’t care at all, either about the torch or about the flash going off in their eyes.
Canon EOS 400D, Sigma 18-200 lens, 1/60th, ISO 400, f/6.3. Straight from the camera.
