Watching deer, there is always one on duty, keeping an eye on things.  Early morning image.  Full frame as felt all elements mean something for the total.

D850   Sigma 150-600 at 350.  1/640 F8 ISO 2000.

Please feel free to view uncompressed.  Thanks for looking and hope all safe.

Make your life spectacular!

Yes, full frame is certainly right for this classic early morning scene with the browsing deer in the mist, Dave.  Lovely mood and feel with this one.  :)

It's almost that time of year again, David. I like the idea but wish that there's more definition to the trees at the back. As is it looks to have too much negative space. Also, as an idea, with the MP of the D850, might be worth trying this in a portrait crop of just the stag and the trees.

You are the master of mood! So subtle-love the misty feel and the hint of morning light.

Love the early morning light as it's softened by the mist. The composition works very well here.
