    Sharp Lady

    Out looking for bambi's. Haven't found any yet. This doe looks like she didn't drop yet. She let me get within 10 yards, before walking away.

    She looks pretty hollow, sure that she has not fawned and hidden it? (She is also very thin)

    Maybe because she has a young one hanging down. Usually from the chest to the back legs, the belly angles upwards. Her's is hanging kind of low. I'm not 100% shure, but some of the other deer have a normal looking belly, and this one is hanging down, pretty good still. That, and she didn't want to run from me, makes me believe she is ready to drop. (they usually drop between the 15th and the end of the month)

    I meant to ask but forgot.

    Now that I have remembered - need to know how you keep the grass/green so muted? Not just this shot but many others previously. The light shining off the leaves says that it was a pretty bright day. PP magic or some camera setting magic ?

    Despite all attempts my greens are always so saturated that they become a nightmare to pp.

    Thanks.

    Didn't do anything, bobo. I think it is just the camera I used. (1DII)

    Have you tried desaturating just the green channel, a little bit?
