Your best animal shots!

OK, now I feel better. :)

I know I'm getting a bit off topic here, apologies, but most mustering in Australia is done via helicopter and dirt-bike now anyway. :'( The properties are so large that horseback is just no longer efficient unless you're going on a once-every-few-years expedition to drag out any stray beasts that have made their home in the more remote and inaccessible parts of a station.


The end of a very romantic and adventure-filled era, no doubt. But the demands of business profitability are made with very loud voices at times, so progress marches on :-\

This was a nocturnal lemur we woke up from his nap.
Looks like Yoda, doesn't he. "Fear feel I..."

I needed to escape winter, so I took a little trip to Loreto Mexico. My highlight was a dolphin encounter in a small 10 person zodiac. The ~15 member pod was very playful with the boat, swimming up beside it and jumping in the waves. This guy does a 5m jump once a day. I wish for a little more shutter speed...best viewed on a smaller screen, unfortunately. But the moment is golden so its still a keeper.

The deer wander through my yard, typically leaving past a large willow tree that shades the sun from the west. The snow is deep and here is what it produced late this afternoon. 400 DO II

That is a nice on, Jack. I like the framing and the pose, and the blur of deep snow (?) in the foreground anchors it without needing to include the full height of the animal.
It looks a wee bit washed out - have you tried a dose of the 'dehaze' filter and a touch of clarity?

Thanks for the comments, I have On1 Raw now but haven't invested time to learn it so only DPP. I've probably brought the highlights up too far and the deer was in shade so overall a lot of exposure adjustment. I was also trying to remove any clarity in the snow since it was kind of dirty (pile behind, from front end loader). I'm sure the shot could be improved by someone in the know. I'll try to go back to it when I get a chance.
