Default Bucky'n Spike come to lunch

I was in the Kitchen making my cup of tea and I saw Bucky way up in the back. Tried a shot but really at 300mm in that light it wasn't so good. Gotts do it though, don't ya.

I must have got him thinking, 'cos he got up and joined his buddy Spike at Sharon's feed spot. Ducks, deer, 'coons, crows etc. all come in.

First 3 shots are through glass and the last off the deck...look really worried, don't they?

Nice shots, are these whitetail, blacktail, or what species ? The G2 is forked on one side which is not the norm for whitetail although non typical can be going in every direction : ) Deer are so red in summer and then totally different color when they get their winter coats. Cool shots

Nice captures Ken, great detail. I think that since your 70-300mm got repaired that your shots overall seem to capture more detail in your subjects.

Thanks kids!
One thing I do miss. Well, I think I do but I've never had it, is "Stabilization." As you see in that first shot f5.6 - 1/50 - ISO 400 @300mm It's a little much, even for a guy who was Utah combat rifle champ. ISO 400 is a lot for the E500 as well.

?? 1/50 at 300mm with no stabilization?? I'm not going to get into any sharpshooting contests with you. I don't think I could do that well even with the stabilization.

Yeah, he's living in fear.

Actually, almost all animals do live their entire lives in constant fear, and rarely die of old age. The people on your island have made a major change in their instincts. Amazing.

One took half a pear out of my hand once, never been able to do it again so far.

There was a forked-horn out here, a few weeks ago. My BIL and nephew went out there and were looking at it. They couldn't've been more than 15 feet from him. He continued to eat, as if they weren't even there. My youngest cat decided to go investigate and still, the deer didn't react. The poor cat didn't know what to do. He kept creeping up and then jumping back really quick. It was hilarious! And just like your deer, he had no fear, whatsoever - or so it seemed, anyway. Eventually he wandered off. I was afraid that he would jump the fence, into the part of the yard where my goats are. But thankfully he didn't. I don't want the deer to discover the hay...
