    The first one and the last one are just fantastic. I like the very light even delicate feel, Great job. The stag ones show some magnificient animals and dont get me wrong are great captures, but to me the background doesnt quite works as they are to well camoflauged.

    What lenses did you use?

    Thanks for your comments. Yes the deer are certainly well camouflaged but that's where it was so I took the shot.
    All shots were with my EM5ii + 40-150 Pro, the Stag shots I was also using the 1.4TC.

    Those really are wonderful images. And you know, while I agree that from a purely aesthetic quality point of view, the stag being difficult to pick out of the background is a downside...but at the same time, I think it's actually interesting because it shows how well adapted these animals are to their environment. For me, the camouflage in these photos is a feature, not a bug! Really shallow DoF, selective-focus treatments of wildlife the way we're used to seeing through an ultrafast telephoto lens are really an unrealistic depiction of their natural habitats.
