    That six-point buck again

    Out this morning and after 30 minutes or so of waiting by the cover crop field, I spotted the six-point buck performing his morning patrol of his territory:



    I've seen him do this before. He normally ducks into the hedge and re-appears at the end nearest the track, so grabbing the four dogs I cautiously made my way down to the edge of the wood.

    I couldn't see him at all but, sure enough, about 10 minutes later he suddenly appeared through the hedge. I clearly hadn't been cautious enough. Presumably sensing we were there, he appeared at a run and went full speed across the grass field to disappear further down the track.

    I managed to grab a few photos first though:







    Also this somewhat shaky one of his rapidly disappearing back-end!



    Walking back along the track I then spied the younger buck and one of the does enjoying the morning sunshine:

    O wad some Power the giftie gie us to see oursels as ithers see us!

    Super photos (once again) Willie Gunn. Sorry to ask, as I am sure it's not the first time but can you tell me what camera and lense you are using?

    Thank you.

    I use a Nikon D750 digital SLR, matched up to a Nikon 300mm lens plus a 1.4x Teleconverter (so 420mm in total).

    That's a particularly flattering angle there, I should think that buck will want a print!

    Brilliant photos. It's inspired me to take my camera next time I go out.
    Not that they'll be a patch on yours.
