Both are really nice shots, but #1 is the prettiest, and #2 is so impressive with those four beautiful bucks.

Something a little different for you guys.

I don't know whether it really qualifies for the theme,as my framing I don't think worked out. I wanted to emphasise the height or simply,how low to the ground muntjac are and I feel it cost me now. I wanted the whole of the rape and a bit of sky,but it's left my subject too close to the base of frame sadly. The image isn't cropped. But I think it's worth sharing as one so rarely sees this guy out of cover. and this seemed the best place to share


But my framing was a deliberate choice and something to learn from and move forwards. This is Muntiacus reevsi or Reeve's muntjac. A non native species brought to the uk. Think beer barrel on legs. i'm wondering whether they might be the most difficult deer to stalk we have here,i'm unsure but know they have astoundiing abilities for an image maker to out smart. I adore our native roe and our wild fallow. I spend a fair bit of time trying for them Given the right day I do ok and can get in. But this fella is so tricky.

To nab an image like this with so little cover is something I rarely achieve,these deer are so sharp,they don't seem to have a conventional rutt here in blighty,they breed all year round. i've only seen fawns a couple of times they are tiny. This is a buck purdy llittle guy,he's chasing a lady and hence I got a chance as I suspect he was somewhat distracted. We are sitting low in deep shade all the camo bla de bla hand held. It's back in may and too hot to stalk anything much so we are in ambush mode,obviously with the rollin' round in the mud proviso there as a back stop.

You have a very nice view of your front yard. Your yard should be an interesting place come rut.
