House bound, I figured I'd go back to by first 6D shots since I took so many and hardly looked at many; that was in 2013. Taken just outside my yard, maybe 5 minutes walking. The moose tend to be somewhat transient rather than hanging around. He walked close to me directly across a very small creek to drink and I had too much lens. :(

These are excellent - only one quibble:

There is no such thing as "too much lens..."

:p:p:p:p:p

This is England and we are not meant to have much wildlife. But, this Muntjac appears in my garden and tolerates being photographed, with the 100-400mm II throttled back to 300mm on the 5DSR. It is so sharp I have to turn off the lens sharpening in DxO as it oversharpens.

Nice picture Alan but your lawn needs cutting, and as we have been in lock down and you’re clearly a married man I’m intrigued to know how you’ve got away with it ! ;) Any tips would be gratefully received.

Cheeky! I mowed it this morning and this is post-cut. I am actually wilding the lawn and allowing the wild flowers to grow. I cut every few weeks at the highest setting and let them spring up. It makes a huge difference to the number of insects. The wife approves - that’s the tip.

That little guy is adorable. Wish I had subjects like that strolling into my yard.

Your wish might change after they destroyed all the peas and corn, ate the raspberries and trampled the flower bed of worse, ate it. ;)

Here is a moose (back in my D5100 days) wondering why I'm not pleased! I had to throttle back to about 100mm. That tree never rebounded but that was partly due to the sapsuckers. Never the less, I still have a salt lick out back since the garden fence is working well and, like Alan, I like to it is a treat to see them.
