Buck in Velvet

By tonyguitar
The ears sit behind the antlers. One ear is almost hidden. However, if you size this up you will see that ear, every hair and the dimples on the nose. When the 70-300mm L lens is held steady, the details are well recorded. TG

I echo the comment above the shot is well sharp but to see the rest of the antler is quite important, I am guilty of this at times toWink

Believe me the rest of the antler is there and it looks much the same. The ear however unbalances the image, and I should have waited a second till it swiveled into view.

Good to get comments though. Now I realize how sensitive we are to chopped off animal parts. TG

What a shame the one antler is clipped but a great capture. Ooops, just read your comment - losing bits of animals and birds can't be avoided sometimes - they never keep still.Wink
