[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Finally a sunny weekend! Went for a afternoon walk in 'Mont St-Bruno National Park' and camed upond 2 deers (as it's often the case). This female was looking strait at me (the male will be posted next time).
I utilized my recently acquired used 350mm, manual focus, telephoto lens from a camera show in Montreal. This lens is by Soligor and was made for the old Pentax screw mount. With a proper screw/bayonet mount adapter, it is easily usable with my Pentax DSLR at aperture priority mode. For an old lens, it works very well and takes nice sharp pictures.

PP: Taken in JPEG, ajusted levels, sharpen 25% and resize for posting.
