A few of Red Deer shots taken with the E-M5 with the 75 f1.8 attached in pretty awful light and weather. Shot at Tom Doun in Scotland.

Fantastic images, for some reason the 2nd one really appeals (maybe because although the other two are excellent I have seen similar before whereas "Shaking off the Weather" is different? )

Doesn't the system work well for you!

Are these crops (if not, how did you manage to get so incredibly close?) . If they are the detail is excellent

3 super shots there, difficult to choose a favourite but the first is very impressive considering the conditions.

These are brilliant. It's difficult to pick a favourite because they're all so good. The light may have been rotten but it doesn't come across in the images.

Damn Damn and double damn. I've waited years to get a shot like no2.
Very very envious and only extremely jealous.

Well done you.

Ditto everything that's been said already. You must have some good stalking skills.

To get so close you must have mastered the skill of levitation?

Thanks everybody for all the kind comments. For those that ask how and are they crops no they are pretty much how close you can get to them at Tom Doun which can be found alongside loch quoich, you take the turn for tom doun off of the A87 close to Invergarry and then it is a good 20 mile drive along to the stags. Location is one of the best places I know to get close shots of these big animals. I found out about the place back in 2010 after visiting a cafe in the near vicinity and got talking to the owner who kindly told me about this place.
Just to show you how close you can get here is a shot from 2010 taken with my canon 40d and at 24mm, yes wideangle stags for the brave.

Brilliant shots!

I have had the 75mm f/1.8 for a few weeks now, but because of my work pattern ( shifts ) I have not been able to use as yet!

Wonderful shots!

Fantastic images as always Alby!! I love the "Shaking off the weather" one. Just wondering, if considering the proximity, whether or not you got showered!!

Superb results - all the superlatives have been used already :)

One very minor point from me - I would love to have see the exif data in the images; are you deliberately removing the metadata or are you losing it somewhere in your workflow?

Tremendous! The second one - deer doing a wet dog impression - is a fabulous shot.
And all the more impressive if you really do have the dreadful squint suggested in your avatar. *yes

Fantastic pictures. I stayed at the Tomdoun Hotel as a night of luxury when backpacking across Scotland many, many years ago. :)

That would be that old spooky hotel about halfway to the deer spots John alongside Loch Garry, it is a lovely old building but never open whenever I've been along there.
