I came across these deer grazing last night around 8:00. It was a good test on how well my 30D handles ISO 1600. I had never ramped the ISO that high before, but I'm quite pleased. These were all shot at 1600 and all at f6.3. The first one was at a shutter speed of 100/sec, the 2nd one at 1/60 and the last at 1/50. The first photo is to show the difference in coloration and the last shot is the first good photo I have ever got of a buck in the wild. It's certainly no trophy, but it is a buck. grin The buck was not cropped at all.

I'm not surprised, Mike. I shoot the 30D at iso1600 as needed and never have found an image that a bit of noise reduction in PP wouldn't make quite nice.

Sure Steve, but what haven't you tried with your 30D? wink Heck, I'm still in the learning stage. smile

Mike I'm about to enter that time of year when my camera ISO never goes lower than 1600! I like the shots!

Finally another one to check off the dastardly honeydew list. Women can be relentless and merciless.

Thanks, Dan.

Does anyone have any idea why the 2 different color variations? Until now, I had never even seen an ash gray white-tail.

I'm learning more every day too, buddy. smilesmile

On the coat differences, what leaps out at me is both the grays are bucks past their fawn year and the oranges are doe/fawn. Maybe bucks transition out of their summer coats earlier than does/fawns.

Steve, you may be right. I did a bit of research this morning and read that in the fall, the brown/orange hair is replaced by gray/tan hair. Evidentally, only the bucks are being fooled by this cooler than normal summer.
