  1. Great atmosphere in this photo! Promoted. Posted 7 years ago
  2. Nice scene.
    Image sharpness is quite good. At least way better at 500mm then my current zoom lens at 250mm.

    1. Thanks! Note, that the 500mm lens has only manual focus. Posted 7 years ago
  3. Great shot with your lens! Is this taken @ weert? How did you circumfence the fence? Posted 7 years ago
    1. The photo is taken in Weert @ the children’s farm. I’ve just shot through the fence, at approximately 50 cm distance from the fence. As you can see the fence doesn’t interfer at all on the photo. Normally I try take pictures through the openings of the fence, but that doesn’t work with a diameter of 95 mm. Posted 7 years ago
      1. I was wondering about that. Hey, i dont see the fence at all, wow 50 cm normally shows a lot of blurred fence. Did you crop a lot? Posted 7 years ago
        1. I didn't crop the picture. The distance to the deers is about 15 meters.
          (By the way, the minimal focusing distance is 2 meters of this lens.)

The Fallow Deer is a ruminant mammal belonging to the family Cervidae. This common species is native to western Eurasia, but has been introduced widely elsewhere. It often includes the rarer Persian Fallow Deer as a subspecies , while others treat it as an entirely different species .

The male is known as a ''buck'', the female is a ''doe'', and the young a ''fawn''. Adult bucks are 140–160 cm long and 85–95 cm shoulder height, and 70-100 kg in weight; does are 130–150 cm long.. more
