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.

Roe fawn uk C. capreolus. I think this young buck presented my first real chance of some images of something so young. I was actually stalking a leveret,who was also very jumpy. Three failed attempts (not my fault remarkably the helicopter was not amusing;-)a ) Anyway final attempt and another hundred yards on the deck I'm just about to get to the little hare when this roe kid saunters out in front of me. My hare legs it and i'mleft in that sort of limbo land of no cover, full camo sure, but utterly no cover and a deer that knew I was there from the first frame. i've probably said this before,but I don't think roe see well up close. Some times the shutter is enough to bring them to investigate that new sound. That's essentially what happened here, Fella circled just like the adults,but I think being an infant,was a lot more laid back about me being there than an adult would be.

Grey ol day it's a lovely soft light,bit dull though,I really wanted a sunset, I can't complain this was magical man he's so cute and so fluffy :lol: As a set of frames,well simply I wish I'd have been wider no ext. i've been playing alot with the new body and the 2x,iso is siilly high techs 1/1600 f8 iso 16000 processed in DPP then PSCC Fella came alot closer I simply was struggling to frame,shame really. It's good though having 800mm so easily weilded and this new sensor which has such good low light performance is somewhat bewildering,it's going to be a good while learning all this.

Ok I'll stop wafflin this years kidlet

An evening shot of a whitetail doe and one of her fawns, taken down below my house. They are in the process of loosing their summer coats and putting on their winter coats. We still call these deer whitetails, but they do have a lot of mule deer blood in them. This gal is really chunky. She has been living pretty good this summer. The fawns have pretty much lost their spots. The fawns are also considerably larger than the purer bred whitetail fawns.:-)

When the deer get tired of posing, they just pick up and leave. It's always fun photographing them, for as long as it lasts.:-):-)
