    Well it's been a great weekend! Not only nice weather, but for once, I have a weekend off that coincides with that weather AND I also have the time to get out with the camera! So, I armed myself with the 600/4 and headed off to one of my local deer parks on fri afternoon thensat morn & afternoon and then again this morning before heading off to work! So, knackered but it was so worth it!
    I've had all kinds of light to play with from golden evening light to warm misty light at sunrise and then today, out and out fog with no sign of the sun until well after I left to go home :(

    It's also the first time I've used the 600 properly since I got it 6 weeks ago (again, I only go out with the camera once every few weeks if that these days) so it was great to see what it could do! And I have to say I absolutely love it, so glad I got it...I just wish I had the chance to use it more often - and it is SHARP, wide open with or without a TC!

    No real stag fights, just lots of roaring, even so it's been a great weeked...

    Lots of early morning mist shots from saturday morning and they are all kinda similar so sorry if you get bored...

    These younger ones had a little fight.

    This one was walking nicely amongst the tree's, took several shots of him because I thought the bracken added a little something extra.

    Thanks for the kind words and the nomination, very kind :)

    MBasile, I don't give out high res images I'm afraid as I add them all to an image library for sale. Hope you understand :)

    gorgeous photos...I would LOVE to be able to shoot animals like this, but I can't justify the glass :( Shooting something like this in the wild seems incredibly freeing to me.
