A Red Deer Stag having a breather before returning to the fray. I rather liked the background of the lake but the image is noisy due to the bad light and high ISO. Have done what I can but have put it up for mods in case anybody cares to have a go.
Settings: F/5 1/125sec +0.33EV ISO800 AV@500mm tripod

Many thanks for your great comments and votes on this series - very much appreciated Smile

I remember this morning Sylvia. The light was terrible and, under the circumstances, this is an excellent shot. Composition is fine and the stag is nicely framed by the tree and the grasses and the water forms a fine BG.

Thank you very much for your comments and votes with a special thank you to Dan (DannoM) and Richard (MossyOak) for the mods - they are both great and a very obvious improvement on my original upload. Thinking very hard about the 7D Richard - has to be before they raise the VAT!!
