I used a long lens of course but did not get as close as this appears !!! This is quite a considerable crop on the original but I like to think its a good testament to the quality of Nikon gear that its has held excellent detail. He has got a really superb stand of Antlers. Cropping-levels and minimum sharpening is about it. I was amused at the way it came up as it clearly shows how these guys manage to make so much noise at this time of the year- hence the title also
My very grateful thanks, as always, for the tremendous response to the Red Squirrel. You are very generous.
