Squirrels are just so damned cute. This handheld shot was quite hard to get sharp due to the poor lighting conditions. 1/60s at 420mm was really pushing the limits of the image stabilisation on my 300mm F4 L IS (with 1.4x TC). The newer generations of IS are much more effective though, giving 3-4 stops instead of the 2 stops i have on this 2nd generation IS lens.
