Crank the Cuteness Dial

Time to turn it up to 10, as the kids say.  Or is that something kids even say?  Who knows?  What I do know is I have pegged the cuteness meter out today.  Actually, I did it about a month back, but I'm turning it back up today.

These are images of Whitetail Deer Fawns that I photographed at Berry College in early July.  

This first image was taken as this little guy was knocked out.  He stayed like this for as long as we were there shooting.  Never cared we even existed.  

ISO 640, 600mm, F/6.3 @ 1/1600th second

The next image is obviously a fawn nursing.  Again, theses creatures had no care in the world I was there.  I was trying for a bit of an interesting crop here that would focus on the fawn.  You can see my shutter speed was a little slow here.  The vibration compensation sure helped me out here.

ISO 800, 560mm, F/6.3 @ 1/400th second

Finally, these were the synchronized fawns.  I've got several pictures of them together like this.  I've also got several where they are both looking in the same direction.  It's almost like their brains were wired together.

ISO 800, 600mm, F/6.3 @ 1/1000th second

These images were all made with my Sony A77ii and Tamron 150-600mm Lens.

Whitetail Buck

Over the weekend, I got some time to get out and do some wildlife photography.  While the focus of the trip was mainly whitetail deer, there were a few other subjects that came forward also.  This whitetail deer image was probably my favorite of the day, though.

I had to shoot at a "high" ISO in order to keep my shutter speed up since it was fairly early in the morning.  In fact, the warm light you see on this deer was some of the first light of the morning.  I took this image with my Canon 7D and Tamron 150-600mm lens.  This is also a rare handheld capture for me.  Another reason I had the ISO cranked up a bit.
