Very nice. I have thousands of deer photos, one of my favorite subjects. The 70 300 is a good lens for them if the light is decent.

I was at the rim of Palo Duro Canyon this morning at 5:45 am to shoot the sunrise. It was spectacular. Had to walk in .7 mile to the overlook as the park does not open until 8am, but they let people park off th road at the gate and walk in to shoot before official opening time.

50-60 five to seven shot brackets later I was walking back to my car when three deer presented themselves about 50 feet in front of me. Of course, my E5 was in the bag so no shot but it sure was peaceful in there at that time.

At 5:45am it's also damn dark. Glad I had a flashlight. As I was setting up in the dark I heard everything from coyotes to turkey and lots of songbirds....everything seemingly except people. Nice.

yes, good job getting it to focus past the branch and instead focus on the deer.

Hi Fred,

Steven said it best, you and the camera did a good job on focusing thru those branches and onto the deer. Well done.

Hi greg,
My favorite time of day, gray light, the sun just beginning to peek out from below the horizon and all around you mother nature's creatures are waking up and starting to chatter. It's a time that makes me glad that I'm alive .
