Too cute to not share

I quite often go to the South Lakes Safari Zoo to test new lenses or get a bit of wildlife photography practice. I usually don't share photos taken at the Zoo because I think it's cheating.
Going through some old images I found this one from 2015 and thought it's just too cute to not share.

Fox with Mole

This one's from earlier in the year when this Vixen was busy feeding her cubs. I can't imagine Moles being very tasty.

Melanistic Fallow Buck with Olympus 100-400mm

I thought I'd make it easy for myself and went to Levens Hall deer park to try the Olympus 100-400mm on something a bit bigger than garden birds.
The 800mm equivalent focal length allowed me to get within range without spooking the deer.
This image taken at 349mm (nearly 700mm FF equivalent) is tack sharp even at 1/500th second shutter speed with the help of the in-lens stabiliser.
