It has been a while since I have seen many deer. They are waiting for the grass and shrubs to get greener. I have seen evidence that they have been nibbling on my daffodils, my rhododendron, and my yucca plants. Several female deer (does) walked through my backyard this afternoon. One doe has an injury on her thigh (hunted, or car — but got away). She didn’t seem to be limping.
Photographic Techniques. Resolution and Focus Testing.
I must have been bored, so spent an afternoon doing some autofocus and resolution testing with some of my cameras and lenses. The goal was to see which combination would be able to focus and provide the highest resolution image of Alexander Hamilton. Ideally, sharp enough to make out the microprint security feature on his shoulder. All of the images were taken with a Nikon D300 camera. The lenses used include a 105 mm f/2.8 VR macro, 200 mm f/2 VR, 300 mm f/2.8 VR, 400 mm f/2.8, and 200-400 mm f/4 VR.
