The Boss

By AnnChown  
At the risk of boring everybody, another from Bushy Park this morning in the excellent company of several epzers.
Many thanks to Lillian for lending me her Sigma lens for the morning without which I would have spent the morning photographing the bracken.
Thank you for looking and for your time - criticisms and comments are welcome.
Many thanks to Bob for his UA for Pontiac and to Dave87 for his UA for Otter.

That is really fantastic. People don't believe me when I tell them the Siggy 150-500mm is a great lens.

What can I say..
Top work has been done again..
Top of the class with honours and merit...
I think you found your calling...
You should send it off the the Deer mag and get it published...
Magic work.. You have so many awards that it just shows you hit the top...

I had that siggy lens a while, and it is bloming good. You have used it expertly here, Ann. The 'shrubbery' in his antlers makes this for me.

21 Oct 2012 3:15PM
Very much a 'wow' shot, Ann. Congratulations on all the awards.

An outstanding image of this magnificent beast, a real monarch of the glen if ever I saw one. He looks most formidable and in peak physical condition and the 150-500mm sigma came in handy as you wouldn't want to get too close!Wink I have this lens and hope to put it to some use again if I ever get the chance to get out with the camera again

Absolutely stunning, deserving of a place on the front cover of a top wildlife magazine or journal.
Brilliant, Ann.

Ann, if this is what you consider boring, I think your exciting image would kill me. I wanted to give you my UA but the website gave me an error msg. that said I was too late. I don't get that rule. :-(
This is an amazing image.

I've been away for eight days, so I've missed out on looking at a lot of images that have been uploaded during that time.

Congratulations on all of the awards.....especially the Editor's Award!
