Muntjac

The weather today stopped us taking Red Kite due to the low cloud near the resting site fairly local to us.
We went for a drive instead and were rewarded by a pair of Muntjac eating in a valley. The smaller of the two turned its back on us and continued munching. The brave one didn't run (as per usual) as I suspect the distance from us gave it encouragement to brave the situation.

After lunching ourselves we found them a little distance away digesting.

Re: Muntjac

That's interesting as the EXIF I get on your original posts is slightly different, maybe due to the EXIF viewer. If it weren't for the max aperture of 5.6 one might get the impression they were taken with the 300 rather than the 40-150+MC20.

Re: Muntjac

A nice find and two good captures Barr1e. However they don't look like Muntjacs to me. I think they are probably Roe Deer, which are much less common in my part of the country.

We wish we were fortunate enough to own the 300, however Anne and I use the MC14 and the MC20 which we find quite adequate for the use we put them too.

Thanks for commenting.

Thanks Ron -

I wasn't sure because originally I thought they were Reece Muntjac and since another made a similar comment to Anne regarding Roe Deer we agree with your thoughts.

Again many thanks.
