Outdoor Wildlife in New Jersey.

More testing out my new telephoto lenses. I don’t have the Kirk Arca-Swiss adapters, so the images were taken hand-held using the lens vibration reduction (VR) to stabilize the image.

Why Are You Pointing That Big Black Lens At ME???

As usual there were several deer in my back yard this afternoon. I took this image hand held with a Nikon D3x and 200-400 mm f/4 VR lens (ISO 200, 400 mm, f/4, 1/250 sec). Image processed with Capture One Pro, Focus Magic, and converted to jpg with Photoshop CS5. It was 85°F (unusual for this early in the Spring) and I am sure that the deer wanted to stay in the shade. They obviously have forgotten the one they lost in my garden last winter.

Wintertime Nature in the Sourland Mountain Preserve.

We had a bit of snow last night. I went for a short walk in the Sourland Mountain Preserve. When I got home I found this young deer eating my shrubs.
