interesting capture, good compositional placement.
We have some of these in my neighbourhood (Epping Forest) - i'm not quite sure the exact species as they are so shy and you only see them occassionally.
They do seem much greater in numbers in the states - I've visited parts of Maryland and Virginia where they just seem to be everywhere and you see them all the time :-)

Ahhh Edwin, you beat me to the Friday Theme this week with
a very similar shot to mine! Well Great minds...
Won't be posting it until tomorrow.
Here I love your deer in the woods and how you placed the deer in the frame. Great tones and woodsy feel in the background.
An excellent post!

You've been lucky indeed.
I don't know how prompt I'd be with the camera, but you hadn't hesitated.

a beautiful moment captured, but i don't understand the blue colours on the deer and on some branches,
some PP done which is wrong IMHO

a beautiful picture but lacks a little depth of field to bring the subject in focus.

Daar was ik nou precies naar op zoek, een ree, die zo maar naar je staat te kijken.
Als het je beroep zou zijn, dan zou je vast ook wel Frans Lanting foto's kunnen maken ---
gaat heeeeel veel tijd en geduld in zitten volgens mij.

I love the composition and the alert pose of the deer.
However, like Jonathan, I am confused by the blue tinges.

Hi Edwin... Nice lens I have hardley had the chance to play with mine yet :-)
Wonderful shot here, good sharp detail, crisp with good clarity in the eyes... Clearly they can hear well with them but I wonder if this deer has also evolved with ears this shape and size to try and scare away animals that might prey on them as the ears really look like large eyes dont they?Lovely capture
TFS and for joining in with the theme
kind regards Helen

Very nice nature shot. Love the pose of the animal and vertical composition. Nice colours and well presented in a white frame.

Deze viel even niet op :-)
Een mooi shot van het hert, die oren zijn wel joekels zeg. Prachtig gevangen :-)

How lucky can one get? This is a wonderful shot of the deer.
I like the effect of the grassy area around the deer as well as the position in the frame.
thanks for sharing, Lisa

A very nice image also reminding me of my own amazement seeing the deer from the woods come right up to the houses in the late afternoon when visiting friends in Philadelphia in the USA. TFS your photo brought back fond memories

The OWO quality is good enough for me.
Great to have contact with a dear this close.
