Hi,

As anyone that's familiar with Roe deer will know it's not every day that you get the opportunity for extreme close-ups. On this occasion though, luck was on my side. The buck was feeding at dusk amongst the deep heather. Every time his head was lowered I took a single step closer until eventually I was close enough for the shot I was after. It was then just a case of waiting until he raised his head to check on his surroundings.
The light was diminishing rapidly so an ISO speed of 1600 was required, not something I'd usually use on a cropped sensor camera, preferring the high ISO capabilities of the full frame 5D when needed. However, I was pleasantly surprised with the result from the 7D.

Camera:Canon EOS 7D
Lens:Canon 500mm f4 & Canon 1.4X extender

Superb Justin - fabulous light, tones, detail and dof. The "mushy" fg lends a wonderful sense of mystery to this exquisite capture.
