Look! It’s not a Bird!

It’s almost 2 weeks that I’ve owned my first long lens, the Sony 200-600mm, as well as the Sony A7 IV, and the local places I’ve been visiting are chock full of all kinds of wildlife, mostly birds. So my focus (pun not intended) has been up in the trees and the sky, rarely on the ground, unless I spot a bird on the ground, a turtle, or something moving.

So as I was walking along a certain tract of the Tinicum wildlife refuge, I happened to spot this young buck. Obviously, it saw me long before I saw it. So I pointed my camera at it and remained as still as possible, hoping it would go back to doing it’s business so I could capture a candid shot, but that just never happened. It was not far off the main path, so I could have backed up and walked further away, but that thought never crossed my mind. Well, there’s always next time as there is no shortage of deer around here!
