  4. The deer here (DC suburbs) are VERY tame. They don't freak out as long
    as you're about 50 yards from them and/or behind some sort of cover.

    When the apple tree in the back yard is dropping fruit, they'll come up
    to within about 10 feet of the back window. Which allows for this:

    When I get a longer lens, I should be able to snap some pictures of the
    deer in more "natural" settings.

    just out of interest, the close up of the deer, is that an L class lens you
    used or something more affordable?

  9. Actually, I think it had one in the oven, and you're absolutely right it
    doesn't look healthy - it's a scrawny suburban deer.

    Last year we had a pretty tough winter and a lot of deer/car incidents.
    The deer I've seen this year have been much more robust. Certainly due
    to the lack of food competition, I'm sure.

  10. Why don't I adjust the color temperature for you in the RAW file?

    Actually, I should go and redo that photo now that I've found the
    Shadow/Highlights tool in photoshop. Might help control the contrast a
    bit.

    Just curious - hasn't some of the colour fringing been shown to be
    an artefact of over-processing deriving from colour balance adjustments?


    Not claiming anything either way.

    Do it right at the origin and you'll lose less in fiddling later on.
    There are some color changes that are lossless, some that are lossy.

    Cheers,

  13. Who, what, whA?!

    Color fringing is typically a failure of the lens at high contrast
    areas.

  14. With 12 bits of color depth, I doubt I'll lose any info shifting 10% one
    way or another.

    Color filters for digital cameras are typically a bad idea. You've got
    more room to work with than you think.

    Probably. Good habits die hard.

    The bow legged scrawny look suggested newborn. If that poor thing was old
    enough to be pregnant AND actually pregnant then it was in a very sorry
    state indeed.

    what do you call a deer with no eyes?

    No eye deer

    What do you call a deer with no eyes and no legs?

    still no eye deer.


    What do you call fly with no wings?

    a walk.

    What do you call a fly with no wings and no legs?

    a raisin.

    What do you call a sheep with no head and no legs?

    A cloud.


    Why do women have smaller feet than men?

    So they can stand closer to the sink


    Why don't women fart as much as men?

    cos they don't shut up long enough to build up sufficient pressure.

  17. Yeah, it was tall enough and "round enough" in the right places. We had
    a group of three deer that would visit. Since last winter, none of them
    have shown - my guess is they got car'd, starved or shot.

    We now have a group of four deer that are much fatter and much better
    looking - they also don't seem as ready to come out of the wood line.
    Probably no need to munch on the shrubs for food.

    when they're that hungry they will get tame real quick you should have left
    food out for them.

  19. They normally come up for the apples off the tree any way. The neighbor
    throws out a little feed corn for them to munch on, so they have that
    too.

    The dog has given up trying to chase the squirrels, cats & groundhogs.
    She wants the deer, and she won't settle for anything smaller!

  20. In the Spring, food is plentiful. The best way to attract them is with a
    salt lick......
