Sometimes, the photos that are “happy accidents” turn out to be good. I was using a lens combination that I normally don’t use – the Vivitar 400mm telephoto lens with a 2x extender on my Canon EOS 5D III with a lens adapter. There were rain showers in the area, but I just had the bug to throw this lens combination on the camera to take a few deer pictures. This deer picture is just for giggles. It is a happy rain deer – deer in the rain.
Since it is a “prime” lens, I was explaining the process of zooming involves moving the entire camera forward or backward, then refocusing the lens. In the process, I snapped a few photos just to get a feel for the minimum focus distance. This one actually turned out rather neat. It is simply rain falling in front of a pine tree.
