Backyard Springtime Nature in New Jersey.
The deer right now are pretty scrawny, waiting for plants to start growing after winter. They don’t eat the daffodils or dandelions, but will start going after shrubs and newly planted gardens. Image two was taken with a Nikon 1 V2 using FT1 adapter and the new 80-400 mm VRII lens. This was taken hand-held (ISO 160, 400 mm, f/5.6, 1/250 sec), the FOV equivalent to an image taken with a 1080 mm lens on a FX (35 mm DSLR camera). This is the full image, not cropped. The third image of the same deer was taken with a Nikon D4 and 600 mm f/4 VR lens (ISO 560, 600 mm, f/4, 1/2000 sec) using a tripod to stabilize the heavy lens. The image was cropped to show approximately the same view.
