Went deer stalking yesterday and found this young buck feeding. He's shedding the velvet off his antlers right now and looks kind of ratty.

Not a lot of light here but enough to show him in the woods.

Actually what I meant to say, was: I was having a break on the deck yesterday afternoon and a couple of locals came over for theirbreak as well. The only reason they showed any interest in me was hoping to get some apple tossed to them. My wife does that.

This is what they really come for:

E500 70-300.

..........now that is accomodating!

I was invisioning the blind, the Scent Away dabber, a spotting scope (20X60X100) the camo stool and quiet whiskers along the camera strap, AND oh, a great big ol'5 cell flashlight.

Then you added that bit about the deck and apple. Nice shots they are too.

I actually remember when I saw something like that pretty much daily from my cabin at the time, some days deer, moose, bear, pike, walleye, gooses of all kind............... yep I did too when I lived in far NW Ontariao, CAN up in the great Red Lake district. I lived and worked at a lodge camp for exactly 365 days at my age of 21 years. Which all means too many years B4 digital cameras, I've not one picture.

Hi Ken,

As much as I like to see deer in our backyard, as it is a sign of how healthy our ecosystem is, those buggers really chew up our plantings. Nice work on the images ....

and, I'm glad you only hunt with a camera and lens.

Nice shots Ken. Was that with the 300mm?

They do look much more cuddly than the gators in my back yard!

Yes, right down to the eye lashes and mouth wiskers. I'm begining to like this lens..:-) It is the 70-300.

Bet you wish you're as fit as you were back then Bob....I do.

You must be quite the guy for 'gator wrestling now Steve, Get your wife totake some shots for us..!
With all this rain you guys are getting they must be up at your doors by now..?

My wife had this theory Zig, that if she feeds them they won't touch our plants.....still unproven..!

We're taking our little pop up camper and going up in the Oregon cascades next week. Hope to got some decent shots up there. We're going to try for "Crater Lake" One of my favourite spots...We''ll see.

Thanks, Ya'll
