Backyard Early Summertime in New Jersey.

There were three young fawns with spots in my backyard. Two of the fawns were very rambunctious running after each other as their mothers stayed still and watched. The new bird for the day at the bird feeder was a Hairy Woodpecker. A variety of Lily flowers have been blooming in my neighbor’s yard. The ones I planted last year didn’t make it being taken over by the “mile-a-minute” vine. Individual images from the slide-shows can be viewed here.

Backyard Summer Nature in New Jersey.

Running Fawn. Images taken with a Nikon D700 camera and 28-300 mm lens. For the first image, the camera wasn’t fast enough to capture focus. Second image, the rear part of the deer was closer in focus, but I no longer had the full animal in view.

Inquisitive Fawn with Spots. Summer Backyard Nature in New Jersey.

One of the first images with a new Nikon D4. It really was darker than this looks. The ISO is 1600, and I have not done any noise reduction in post processing. Focusing was fast and accurate.
