The 50mm lens is great at many things, but wildlife photography is not one of them*. Still, there can be times when it can capture a nice shot if you’ve got your eyes open and your camera handy. The other day we were in my backyard and this little fellow was scampering across the fence, just a few feet from my camera. I think he was trying to make a clean getaway with a berry from one of our bushes, but looks like I caught him in the act.

 *unless you happen to be in a zoo, where you can get right up close and personal with said wildlife because they’re stuck in a cage. Or if your wildlife consists of something like a turtle that can’t exactly scamper off quickly when you approach. But if you’re going on a safari, better leave that 50mm lens at home.
