So beautiful😀

Behind The Lens

Location
This was taken along a hiking trail near abandoned gold mines in Goldfield Colorado (near Cripple Creek)
Time
This was taken about mid-day
Lighting
Light was pretty harsh with the sun almost directly overhead
Equipment
This was taken hand-held with a Canon 80D and Tamron 16-300mm superzoom.
Inspiration
I was just wandering around exploring when I came across this critter - there were actually two of these guys, her friend was nearby. Neither were too afraid of me, the trail is used pretty frequently, they're used to people being around
Editing
This was processed slightly for light and shadows in Lightroom
In my camera bag
These days my 'walk about' setup is a Canon RP Mirrorless with a 24-240mm lens, but I'll also carry a 5D Mk III with any number of lenses if I'm looking to shoot something specific. I do have a couple of crop sensor bodies if I want a bit more reach, the extra magnification from the 1.6 crop factor helps there. I'm usually looking for cool things at random while traveling, so I often don't plan shots beforehand - I'm a pretty impromptu/opportunistic photographer. I've found I spend the most time with a 16-35mm wide angle, various prime lenses, or some sort of zoom depending on what I'm shooting. I also tend to use super-zooms a lot so I don't have to changes lenses out in the open.
Feedback
The deer was in pretty high grass and I was shooting through pretty tall weeds - using manual focus helped keep the deer in focus instead of the weeds!
