Roger, I greatly enjoy your posts and cringe at the temps you shoot in. The last deer shot I posted here was out my kitchen window in the backyard. This shot is out the front window and is full frame. The deer was too close for me to get a full body shot. It could be a little sharper, but the reason I was at home is carpal tunnel surgery on my right hand, (having the left hand done Thursday). And I believe it was 70 degrees inside at the time.... :blah:

PS: Anybody ever seen the type of bokah in this shot before? Lens was Canon's 400L. There's no screen either.

Gooood capture, sounds like it was a little warmer for you than my normal.

Is there a screen on the window you are shooting out of? I like the shot and the multiple focus areas.

cool shot. i like the spot light on the face. the window you shot out of must have caused this weird bokeh. i've never seen it on my 400mm f5.6. then again i've never shot with it through a window. do you use any uv filter on your lens? sorry to hear about your recent carpal tunnel surgery. hope the recovery is going fast.

Thanx all - there was no screen, only 2 panes of glass. I'm thinking it was the glass too because I've never seen it before either. I have taken 1000s of shots with the lens without seeing this strange bokeh. I was not shooting straight out the window either.
