A 400 mm lens. I knew it!

Canon is famous for having great lenses.

A few more shots of Big Eddy. Given his stature and the couple of brief periods she had him in sight, he gets a bit more coverage. Not the best of backgrounds, but if one looks closely (Ctrl + Keys), the extra points on his high right side show up. He was about 120 yds out, so it's taken some cropping to bring things in a little closer. He and his lady friend spent most of their time in a teasel patch. Sort of a thistle like plant, and they're extremely fond of the withered leaves in the fall. Nothing eats the tops or stems.

Sort of has the oft mentioned "you owe me money" look

A last look with one of his lady friends in the background.

Probably the largest conventional 4by in the neighborhood. Took several trips out to find him within a reasonable range. Doesn't look very old, so maybe some improvement as he ages. Notches on the bottom of each ear might be an identifying characteristic.

Next, a couple of "twice in one's lifetime" shots. About 5 years back there was a black doe in the neighborhood for a couple seasons not to be seen subsequently. Thoughts were never again, but this year a black fawn appeared. A sibling to its right, mom and her suitor to the left.

Blackie was the product of a twin birthing, with its brother displaying a rather unique rear end for a mule deer. Should be easy to track if it makes it through a few seasons. A typical tail is evident in some of the other images here.

Last, a little closer look.

The best of Thanksgivings to all, and will add some more tomorrow.

What are you using, a 400 mm lens?

Cookie runs around with three cameras, all Canon gear, and near enough to put one in cosigner land. Makes the gun safe seem inexpensive.

1= EOS 70D oldest and a 1.6 crop sensor wearing an 18 to 55 mm lens for the typical landscape/camp shots.
2= EOS 5D that I think is 1.4 crop sensor wearing a 100-400 mm lens. With the crop sensor its the equivalent of a 140 to 560 mm
3= EOS 7D which I believe is full frame and its wearing a Canon 500mm prime.

The 100-400 is her mainstay, and the 500 big gun is for reaching out.

Simon, I asked a similar question about a year ago and can add a little more info.

I don't recall the short lens, but if my memory serves, two of Cookie's lenses were the Canon "L series" -- amazing, no compromise optics, fluorite crystal lens elements. (John stops to wipe drool off keyboard).

LINK to review of 100 to 400 mm L series lens

LINK to review of Canon 500 L -- cost about 9,000 USD

Base on the images posted here (plus a friend's Canon 500L), it does seem that you get what you pay for -- and 1minute knows that "happy wife, happy life"! grin

Also, note that these images have been really downsized -- the original images out of the camera must be spectacular, and well-suited to big prints or magazine covers.

JPB:

One is correct about our screen renderings on this site. They depict a little over 5% of the original image's resolution. Computer screens really cannot do them justice. They were uploaded to the Postimage.org site at about 11.5% of the original scale and undergo some further reduction when rendered here.
Have a good one,

A slightly more extravagant camp established Oct 21 with both the travel trailer (sleeping) and 12x14 wall tent (cooking, eating, and evening socializing in a warm environment). Much superior to huddling around a campfire on windy evenings.

About 3 weeks later conditions had changed (tarp on tent so snow will slide off), and she had a few campsite visitors around. Seems the does were fond of Halloween pumpkins, and the bucks tracked the does.

Now a sampling from the thousands of images captured:
A 3By in the early morning shade.

A slightly larger version.

And a 3 by 4.

Then a 4 by 3.

Caught one crossing the river behind camp leaving her with only a rear view.

Will add to this tomorrow, as it's been a long day, and I think one is only allowed 7 or so images in a single post. Have a good one,

Just a series of deer for this session.

Nap time:
[Linked Image from i.postimg.cc]

Locals call these cactus bucks as they never shed the velvet. Plumbing seemed to be there, but had no visible scrotum when viewed from the rear.
[Linked Image from i.postimg.cc]

A 4 by 3 that hung around the camp vicinity.
[Linked Image from i.postimg.cc]

A 4 by that ran the same ground. This and the buck in the prior pic put on about a 10 minute battle with the 4 by 3 as the victor. Unfortunately, it was around 9:30 in the evening and pitch black outside. Got the flashlights out and watched the whole event. Antlers were locked up for most of the duration and we had thoughts of finding them dead the next morning. Eventually got separated, however, with the 4 by vacating the area and rounding up some more does over in the next drainage.
[Linked Image from i.postimg.cc]

Same 4 by just a different view.

Another pic on a slightly brighter day. Unfortunately we're often blessed with Oregon's eternal winter gray.
[Linked Image from i.postimg.cc]

and once again crossing the river.

Will kick out a little variety tomorrow,
