Thread: Asleep in the garden.

  1. #1

    Asleep in the garden.

    Woke up late a couple of Saturdays ago, opened the curtains and there, at the top of the garden was this small 4 point buck.

    He was curled up obviously knacked from barking at me the previous day.

    I grabed the camera - which stands in the corner on it's tripod - made a few adjustments. Height, rotation, apeture and ISO and stalked up

    the garden path in my mochasins. I got to 15 yards and framed him knowing he'd get up left to right. I got a few more as he ran up the hill.

    He wasn't as panicked by the camera noise as I thought he'd be. Canon EOS 30D + Sigma 400mm F5.6

    that's great, well spotted but I've a feeling most would have been thinking about grabbing something else before a camera!

    Good skills. What a great garden you got. The best I get is a sparrow hawk n loads of magpies.

    Yep -never shoot anything in your garden that you'd like to see come back. I'll see if i can dig out the images of the sika stag eating apples off my tree from last year.
