I found this little guy inside last night, and despite my best efforts to be lazy and leave the camera gear in the bag I knew I had to take pictures of him. This dude was tiny, just a baby. But no worries, the level of detail captured is amazing. These small resolution photos don't do it justice (click a pic to enlarge). I'm convinced there's not a better combo for close ups than my 7D and 100mm (which because of the crop ratio is essentially a 160mm). I don't know how this isn't an L lens.
Anyway, I'm glad I took the time to get a few shots. These would look awesome blown up huge on a wall. I might have to get a huge print made. The lesson to be learned: don't be lazy.
I'm pretty convinced that he wanted to become my friend after he figured out I wasn't trying to eat him. After trying to release him back into the wild he clung on, not letting go. We had bonded...or maybe it was because I had just blinded him, I don't know. Anyway, I had to pry him off. It was a little bit of a White Fang moment. Who knows, maybe we'll meet again one day.
