Re: How to snap a Mongoose at night without a flash?

Why not try a shot in the night with the biggest aperture with and without the flash.
Olympus M.Zuiko Digital ED 14-150mm F4.0-5.6 II

I have two M.Zuiko lenses. The one above and the Olympus M.Zuiko Digital ED 75-300mm f/4.8-6.7 II Lens

The 14-150mm is the lens I had on the camera. Can you please advise on ISO, shutter speed and aperture settings? Do you have any Mongoose where you live? If so, your opinion about using a flash? Would the flash going off frighten the animal?

I donít want to scare the Mongooses away, as itís reassuring to see them. We get snakes up by the house and sometimes inside. Thank you
All the best
