Out this morning and captured some enchanting video of does and followers.
While doing so I captured some stills on the video.
Recent posts about camera angles and zooms ect, thought this might be of interest....its just a bit of fun.
Have a look at the still. Tell me how far from the trail camera I am and how far is the doe from the camera. Remember the camera never lies.;)

Please except this in its context I am not defending any other post just making a point.

I'll have a go. . .

from the trail camera I am - 20 yards using the zoom

doe from the camera - 10 feet (assume from the trail camera)

I wouldn't have a clue about the distances, but would like to see the footage of the does and followers.

Take care,

Very good guess on the camera, 25m's was correct. The doe however is another 70m's behind the camera and 95m from me.
Like I said just a bit of fun, but illustrates how deceptive things can be like a x42 zoom and I was kneeling when zoomed up so a different angle of 3ft.
