Fun Friday: Peek-A-Boo!

Today’s “Fun Friday” post is a fairly common experience I come across when kayaking … a juvenile Raccoon “hiding” behind some grasses at the edge of the water, watching “that crazy person in that funny looking contraption”:

When I have an experience like this, I will quickly shoot a few frames, then slowly back away and let the little guy go about his business. This also helps to instill in him that I am no threat, which might come in handy during another encounter as he grows up!

Photographic Equipment Used:

  • Canon 1D Mark 3 body
  • Canon EF 100mm-400mm, f/4.5-f/5.6 IS lens, with Canon 1.4x TC, shot at 420mm
  • Handheld from a kayak, with IS “On”
  • ISO 800
  • Aperture f/8
  • Shutter 1/1250 sec.
