This is the first wild tom turkey we've been able to photograph and we were fortunate to be quite close. The mating season was over so he wasn't with any hens and he wasn't strutting or fanning his tail feathers. Nonetheless, he stood for a nice portrait and we can see the beard on his chest. This photo was shot about mid-morning but the thick overhead canopy limited the light that reached the forest floor.
400mm lens, 1/400 second at f/2.8, ISO 5000.

This photograph shows a playful fawn whitetail deer getting rambunctious with its mother. I was positioned across a creek and the two deer stayed in front of me for about 5 minutes. The doe was trying to eat and the fawn was continuously scampering about and sometimes leaping onto the doe's back. It was a lot of fun to watch. This happened about a half hour after sunrise but the deer were under a thick canopy of trees. There wasn't much light there so it was a good test for the new Canon 1DX MkII camera and a very high ISO setting. 400mm lens, 1/400 second at f/2.8, ISO 16000.
There certainly was noise in the image but that was reduced quite a bit during the raw processing. I wouldn't make a large print, though, unless the viewing distance was expected to be fairly long. Anyway, it was great to capture such a fun image.
