I have no idea how to judge what is best but here is a fairly recent young,probably yearling Roe,from blighty one of our true native's. He caught me off guard by coming to see the tree, I was trying to be,inside min focus distance long end less than 8M.Gutted one doesn't get that type of chance often,but hey even though the light went seconds before this,at least I got something,:-)

I actually think it's really good light - nice and soft and even throughout the frame. . I love to shoot in that kind of light.

I also really like the fact that you were able to put the sky behind him; that's always a nice compositional choice to be able to make.

Great job!

Jeff you are just too cool,but no amount of kiddery will make me believe a deer will make you look good,what you do is a craft mate learnt by hours spent in the field watching and observing....I'm not lying am I;-)a I might say the same about my hares though:lol:

Love the raised head jeff,sniff sniff oh it's jeff he's cool lol and frankly I'd kill for a chance in snow !!


Tom,I do hope you see this,i'm not very good with all this PC malarky,I spent an hour on a multii quote else where,last night, which went very very wrong,so I'm kinda hoping I'll get by here. Tom as with Jeff huge admiration and much you have taught me. I've read so many of your words mate ,thank you.

Buddy the light, let me be more specific for you because I understand your comment and mine is somewhat vague ,i'm right on the last rays of sun for the day,when a big ol' black cloud rolls in and nails all those golden rays,leaving me with the above. These clouds that clobber a sunset happen so oft here we have nicknamed them the cloud of death,I know a bit extreme but I am slightly mad(frankly I think most of us are:-) ) So although yes it is lovely soft marginal light,it's not quite that special dappled magical orangy stuff dancing on my subject I had just seconds earlier . This left me scrabbling a bit on techs ,but I'm trilled with the experience and how close he came.

Our Roe are tricky subjects,but true natives here,we also have red,very simiialr to your elk,is it wapiti is that correct? as our other native. With our history on this tiny isle we then have fallow, bought in probably by the normans eons back, and more recently sikka,chinese water deer and reeves muntjac have come here.

I also stalk fallow and muntjac as local populations exist, along with the roe,as wild subjects. We can access parkland deer here,which are not really the same for me,not being really wild but I occassionally practice with a small local red herd very captive.

i'll see if I can find some of what I stalk to share...............

first up a roe doe in the moult,it's amazing to see how this deer changes from the winter coat above a sort of grey to the vibrant red orange of summer

This is a fallow fawn she's a tiny thing,I tripped over her and mum on a footpath while hoping to bag a hare,mum went one way baby straight at me,I left the spot immediately after firing of a few frames,it bothered me I'd split them-? .

tom please forgive waaaay to many hours being worked I can't find you a doe I know I have them. But this gives some idea of my options deer wise

Roe Capreoulus capreolus fallow : Dama dama...Muntjac Muntiacus reevsi

Tom we have no apex predators here,everything we had is gone, so my fallow population is heavily culled making them incredibly tricky to get close too. I have tried so hard to get the fallow rut,but so far failed maybe next year. It is a truly spectacular event,when these lads fight I have seen them throw one another up into the air. Buddy I hope this is ok,I felt you might find this interesting I suspect you spend a few hours here and there with deer and as already said although my time is serevely compressed I wanted to try and give a bit back to you guys by way of thanks

take care both and cheers,I really have learnt soo sooooooo much from you two guys

stu

ps it appears my fallow fawn is too large maybe you can click a link I sadly have so little time I can't resize at this moment for you,my humble apologies

lol... I do hear you Stu.. A little talent helps here and there. But ya.. Mostly they just love me.. lol

The hardest part for me right now is using a broken front wheel. Never know if I'm going to get 2 or 3 click's or none at all... and that makes it hard to change shutter speeds on the fly.

So I just rely on my charm.

Now I understand what you meant. . Yeah, when you have wonderful sunlight on subjects and then the sun disappears it is so disappointing ...... it often makes me not feel like shooting anymore (although that would clearly be a mistake and I'd regret it later)

Yes, Wapiti are Elk. . Although I believe that Red Deer can eventually grow much larger, more complex antlers than our Elk, if they are permitted to love long enough.

I would like to go to New Zealand someday to photograph Red Deer in the rut, but I have not yet found a place that seems like it would give me the kinds of opportunities I am looking for.

Wow! . That is a lot of different species to keep up with! . Do they all rut pretty much at the same time of year? . Or is it spread out a lot?

Our Elk rut in September, and the Whitetail and Mule Deer rut in November. . It helps that the Elk are so much earlier, but if one wants to specialize in both Whitetail and Mule Deer, that is a problem because they rut simultaneously, and you pretty much have to focus on one or the other. . They co-exist in many of the same places, but the best places to photograph Whitetails are not the same places where you can best photograph Muleys.

Our Whitetail do the same thing, with an extreme difference between their summer coats and winter coats. . Muleys do also, but not to quite the same extent, as their summer coats aren't quite as red as the Whitetail's summer coats.

And a buck, not a stag. Deer nomenclature here is quite specific in some cases.

So then, what is the difference between a buck and a stag?

And also, what about the term, "hart"? . I know that is used in some parts of the world to refer to a male deer. . Do they use that term where you live?

.

Buddy I hope this is ok. I felt you might find this interesting. I suspect you spend a few hours here and there with deer and as already said although my time is severely compressed I wanted to try and give a bit back to you guys by way of thanks.

Of course it is okay!

I love talking about deer and learning about them and it is cool to learn about deer in other parts of the world.
