"WT Deer In And Out Of Velvet...."
Sat 22-Sep-12 06:27 PM by Lunastar


Here's a handsome perfect 4X4 whitetail buck I photographed in January then two weeks ago before he shed antler velvet. First image captured with D300, Nikkor 300/2.8 lens, f4,ISO 500, 1/1000SS, -.3EV, monopod. Second shot captured with D300 and 200-400/4 Nikkor zoom lens, f8, 1/1250SS,ISO 640, -.7EV, monopod.

Thanks, Richard! I actually have a whitetail rut article with many images hitting the stands next month. Interestingly, they chose to use images that were all captured on overcast days rather than the better lit images in the package.

Mark:

Congrats - both are nice images.

It looks like he has added a G-4 tine on his right main beam for this season.

Thanks, Grady! Yes, he's added a small kicker G4 and a little mass, too! Hopefully, I can catch up to him during the rut as he is a huge bodied buck!

Great pose, great detail in both. Did you have frost on the ground in #1 or is the grass so white?

Regards, Antero

Thanks, Antero! Yes, it was a cold morning with a hard frost covering the swamp grass.

Great shots, Mark. It's really neat to be able to keep track of these beautiful animals.

Thanks, John! Yes, I love tracking them and can't wait for more bucks to move in when the rut heats up in Nov! Hopefully, many made it through last year's late hunting seasons. But, that's the chance they take when wandering off a refuge!

Both are beautiful image Mark. I like the first one for the composition and location, nice setting & light. The second one I like for the fine detail in the big guy. Looks like you and the Hubble made friends, nice work. You must have been pretty close at 280 mm.

Thanks, Scott! Yes, I was pretty close as I was sitting in some cattails just slightly downhill from the deer. And yeah, the lens is a great one and when there is something to photograph I don't notice the weight at all! I carried the little beast on a 5 mile hike last weekend....
