Tough Buck

7 posts in this topic

I've been watching this buck for a couple of weeks. He has his share of scar's but seems to be able to hold on to his Harem of four does.

I should have had my ISO cranked up, but as you can see in the background there was alot of sun. Not at the moment where I got my shot.

Sweet pose, micpic. Nice work.

No need to ramp up iso if iso200 and 1/125 at f5.6 with the IS was enough to get you a sharp shot. And this looks sharp. Only reason to crank up iso in a case like this is if there's not enough light for you to hold steady at your shutter speed, and you did very well here.

Thanks, I'm glad you liked the shot. I really like your imput Steve, it helps alot. This was a time when both the deer and me suprised each other, so my first thought is get the image no matter what my settings are and by the time I got them changed all I could get was a big white tail.

Hey,that's a nice shot! It looks like that new fangled camera thingy is serving you well. Give that 50D a dunk in the river-I wanna know how water resistant it is. grin

    • The US gets Assange this way. Not difficult to understand.
    • It has a slight liberal bias: all major news media lies between the political ideology of a typical Democrat and a typical Republican. No outlet is going to intentionally dissuade 30% of the market, it's just bad business. With regards to Trump though, he has made an enemy of the press. It has little to do with his political affiliation and everything to do with his confrontational attitude. See this "come at me bro" of a statement from the Press Corps. Note they welcome Trump to sue them for the so called "fake news", probably because they are confident in the accuracy of their articles. Also realize that it is entirely possible for something to be accurate and biased: which is probably all you will see in Trump coverage from here until the end of his Presidency    
    • So we support intelligence depts now?
    • You mean fake Bruce Springsteen.  The real one is a librul and the fake one didn't want to urinate on the bed of the real one.   I'm sure Trump wanted them to play "Born in the USA" like all the other politicians that have no clue what that song is about but like the chorus.  
    • I'm trying to wrap my head around this one. Obama truly is a bigger POS than I thought. Good, God this is bizarro world. By commuting the sentence of this freak show, it's like burning down all the intelligence depts. Why do we have laws? 
    • So Obama is mad at the Russians for hacking and Wikileaks for publishing the hacks yet he just Pardoned Chelsea Bradley Manning who stole secrets and gave them to Wikileaks   This is a real WTF moment.
    • You failed to post the very next part of that very article:     You never patted Obama on the back for any of that oddly enough.    http://www.reuters.com/article/cbusiness-us-gm-tech-center-renovation-idCAKBN0NZ19920150514   So either congratulate both or congratulate neither.
    • Because you are banking on not having to pay it back in your lifetime and are perfectly fine with passing that debt down to future generations which allows you to live a better lifestyle at their expense.  Some of us don't think it'e ethical to pass debt onto generations who will have no say in the process.
