|6x6 With Velvet|
This is a 4K camera and I film in UHD mode. With this one is able to capture 8 megapixel stills from the video. Panasonic has a method for doing this, but I have not tried it. I simply load the video into my video editing program, Vegas Pro 13, and scroll through the timeline until I find a suitable frame and then capture it. Below are two stills captured in this manner that shows how the velvet cracks and bloody spots appear before the actual shedding occurs.
On Thursday morning I photographed two bulls that were feeding on apples. The first photo shows how the velvet shedding process progresses from the stage depicted in the the photos above.
The second photo shows a bull that is completely shed and also documents how bulls dislodge apples from the trees by striking the branches with their antlers.
