Popi and Pipo are the lastest addition to our menagerie. Don’t ask how we ended up with two hamsters while we have a cat, eager to hunt anything moving, from baby geckos to dragonflies…

Anyway, it is an occasion to take out the camera and try to take a few shots. Issue no1: they cannot stop moving and hence the shooting turned out to be a good exercise to train myself on the auto-focus functions of the 7D.


It turns out most of the pictures were missed, in part because of my relative inexperience with auto-focusing, in part because the lens I used was not completely appropriate, unable to focus at lens than a meter.

Hunger or curiosity?

The (Suki) cat participated actively to the sequence, though restrain herself to nab a hamster. She ate already today.
