Default New Lens - First pics

Finally got a lens that I can reach out and grab some better pictures of wildlife with. Its fun living in an area where there are deer all over the place. Went driving around last night in one of the areas they just started breaking ground on for new development and got a few decent shots. I love to hunt and I always will, but I have found a great enjoyment from capturing pictures of these animals as well.

Thank y’all! Technically the lens is not mine but my buddy is letting me borrow it long term. He never uses it so he said I can use it as long as I need it. Setup is as follows.
Lens - Canon 70-200 2.8 IS II with 1.4 extender.
Body - Sony A7III. I had a Nikon D80 for a long time and finally upgraded. The camera is awesome. I bought a Sigma MC-11 to fit the Canon lens to the Sony. I’m really loving the setup.

The 70200 2.8 II is a beast! Will work great as a boat anchor or self defense mechanism if you ever get in a jam! haha.

Great shots!

Great pictures. There are few things better taken on a camera than a well captured wildlife photo
