I had to hurry to capture this shot and through the window at that. This mother doe, whose broken leg is now healing, was out showing her little one, "Dice", around the neighborhood. Every year we enjoy the arrival of fawn in the Spring...at least until the discover the tender morsels in the inner areas of our gardens.

Nice shot Virginia.

So how are you liking the 1.7 with the 70-200VR so far?

Frank, when I get results like this through a window, how can one complain? If I have any issues, it is from closer shots. For example, when I'm try to do a floral up close. Sometimes I miss the focal plane because I'm probably too close (...sort of a pun here since my maiden name is CLOSE!) Shots in the distance (340mm) are almost always terrific.

Virginia,

I've had pretty good results with the 1.7 and the 300 2.8. It isn't quite as sharp as the 1.4, but I use it when I need the reach.
