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.

Garden Spider macro

I had another outing with the Olympus 60mm macro lens. I'm loving this lens you get such great quality images from such a small lens, it's so light you hardly know it's in your camera bag so there's no reason to leave it at home.
This is another in-camera focus stack, this time I used a tripod.
