This was shot on my Oly E-510. I was heading home through Stanley park about 8:00pm late summer and the light was fading fast. These guys just sort of popped out of the bush and there they are! So I do the math...Too dark for the lens 40-150 kit lens. And meanwhile it's going down in front of me. I popped the on camera flash and hoped things would go. This was the result of that (Not a total Nixon quote, but close) I think I could devote a lot of time to shooting these guys in the wild!!

Nice! I wouldn't have guessed you used a flash if you hadn't said it. The one in the front looks like he's up to no good.

It is probably squinting because of the flash. My dog does the same thing. These are nice shots considering the circumstances. Were you behind a window or outside? If you were outside, that mother is pretty brave to bring her family out with you standing there.
