I love VR!
D300 on a monopod, 70-300 VR on 250mm, iso 1600 and 1/4 shutter speed and I get this:
Not too shabby I think. OK, granted, this was one of about a dozen but still...
A bit further on I got this.
Now, pictures like this will never draw in the crowds, certainly not on flickr but I like it. I'd found this doe and was tracking her for a few minutes in my viewfinder waiting for her to raise her head briefly. She did when a walker some distance away stepped on a twig.
This one took some more effort, this buck is camera shy, doesn't run but strolls away taking care only to show his rear towards the camera. Waling a big circle and doing a slow approach work
All in all some nice work I think but still not the fighting bucks I'm hoping for.
