That day it was probably bug spray and not condensation. As for your cat, I'm sure you could just PS out that screen and I've found that a well exposed high ISO pic shows better than a lower ISO exposed rough. I wouldn't have guessed you used that high of speed.

Dave, I always have the black bird/plane issue when shooting them all my opportunities seem to be mid day. I'll try starting at +1 or 2. Thanks for the enlightenment.
No, it was condensation. It was in the high 90s outside with dew point temps near 86. Inside my house it was a comfy 74 and dry. Taking a cool camera out into that sauna was guaranteeing condensation. Same thing happens to my sunglasses when I get out of my car.

Dave's tip about shooting +1EV or +2EV works wonders with high ISO. Give it a try. Here's one I shot last night at 6400ISO.
