    Full camoflauge C&C welcome!!!!

    Went onto a different piece of property today in the hopes of getting some more pictures of deer. Couldn't get close enough to do them justice but did find this guy. I had to watch his every move to keep track of where he was at since he blended so well with the grass and the dirt. Let me know what you think. I don't own a macro camera so I made due with my 55mm to 250mm zoom.

    I see what you mean about needing keep a close watch.

    The back-end seems quite a bit softer than the front part of the body.

    That is the problem with macro shots, the focus depth can be very shallow. Ideally, I would have used a slightly narrowerer aperture, around F11, maybe even F14, to help with this and increased the Iso (or used flash).

    And, when possible, getting absolutely square with the subject. But as long as the eyes are sharp I'm not really too worried about the rear end.

    I completely agree. The back is much softer. I think I stretched the limits of my lens and my skill with this particular photo. I wish I had a dedicated macro lens but I don't and one isn't in my immediate future. This was done with a standard telephoto lens so I'm guessing that by closing down the lens would get me more depth of field. I am off wednesday and intend to go out and shoot some more.

    By the way, here's the EXIF data;
    Exposure 0.005 sec (1/200)
    Aperture f/8.0
    Focal Length 250 mm
    ISO Speed 400
    Exposure Bias 0 EV
    Flash On, Fired
    Orientation Horizontal (normal)
    X-Resolution 72 dpi
    Y-Resolution 72 dpi
