    Another beautiful set Steve,

    Well done.

    My only small suggestion would be to #2 here, which is to clone out the dark patch in the grass/behind the ear.

    Other than that, pretty well perfect,

    ...and there's that damn fly again...

    You certainly handle that lens well, Steve - the level of detail is quite stunning.

    They're beautiful. #1 has my heartstring vote, though. What lens was Kit referring to? Whatever it is, you're making it work!

    ...........them damn fly's.................Thanks kit, the 300 f/4L is an amaizingly sharp lens. I wouldn't be upset if it were glued to my camera.

    Thanks myra, kit was referring to my canon 300 f/4L lens. Great wildlife lens at a reasonable price. Works very well with teleconverters also.

    Great series Steve.
    Every single is amazingly sharp, great job.

    Would you mind sharing some more about your gear and how you took these shots?

    I shooting with a canon 40D and Canon 300 f/4L lens (sometimes with a 1.4TC, but not for these shots) . I also use a monopod most of the time.

    If you want good wildlife shots, you HAVE to get close. Either with a lens, or physically. The place i go is a park. The deer are wild and live the the surrounding woods. Some are quite use to people and will let you get close, others will bolt at the slightest movement.

    When i find one that will cooperate, i slowly move in untill i can frame the shot without having to crop.(about 10 or 11 meters). Then i'm constantly at the ready for a shot untill the deer does something that interests me and i take a few shots. I'll usually shoot several hundred shots and only keep the best few. (things like catching a fly in frame and such).

    If you don't have a place like this, you have to pattern the animals from a distance, and then set up a ground blind near a path they travel and wait for the shot. You'll only get a few, so make them count.(shoot some sample shots of the background and check your exposure from time to time)

    Hope this helps.

    Re: A few more bambi pics.

    Thanks for sharing, Steve. We have a park nearby that houses indigenous animals and birds which have been brought there due to injury or abandoment (ie mothers have been killed) or which have been subsequently born there. Even though there are some fences and getting up close and personal is not possible, you've made me re-think some possibilities of how to shoot through the barriers. There are also lovely pond and wetland areas with birds and seals that can be photographed without the nuisance of the fences. I don't have that great lens, but will practice with what I've got I feel a little field trip coming on...
