I thought I’d try a little different direction here.
This little guy seems to be planning his next “caper”!
Okay shot of the Bandit, maybe, but I think the chain link fence in the background kind of jacked with my bokeh.
Still, I think he's kind of cute!
I’m always open to suggestion.
All the Best,

Terry, I like this shot, his/her face is quite interesting, and the blurred background is necessary not to disturb the main subject. Have you done any sort of eye-sharpening for this?

Great shot, Terry. I see what you mean about the fence: the repeating pattern kind of makes something like a moire. Still, Yan's right: you certainly wouldn't want a deeper DOF. I can see I need to update my firmware, though, to get my facial expression into the EXIF.

Would that be on your face, or the coon's?

Yan Zhang, Rick, Rob, thank you for giving this the old once over. One day (and we should all be so lucky to live so long!) I may be in a position to pay this forward. Should that day ever come, I’m going to have a lot of paying to the Piper. But I’ll always remember and never forget.
Yan Zhang, I did do some eye sharpening on the Bandit.
We were smiling at each other wondering who would get over on whom first! He won, but he cheated!
And Rob, coons are either planning a “caper” or involved in one. They are all cutsie, warm, and fuzzy until they pay you a visit under cover of darkness. They lose their appeal toot suite as well as PDQ when you wake up in the morning only to discover the place is trashed!
I don’t know how they do it but I think it’s an inside job. I think they have “turned” my mini Schnauzer. She’s always had a “thing” for the “bad boys”!
The Missouri breed wear leather jackets with the sleeves cut off, travel in gangs, and when they are done wreaking havoc, they “tag” your house with spray paint!
The worst part is that you can’t identify them in a police lineup because they are all wearing masks!
(Sorry! Couldn’t resist! )
