So, I'm sitting on a dirt road where I have a pretty good view of an area that usually has a lot of deer activity.
I hear something coming through the brush up towards the road (really close to where I'm at), I move back about six feet and a doe jumps out onto the road with her two fawns.
She gave me one second to get a picture, than she ran up the other side of the road with the fawns quickly following behind.

I hear more movement and this pretty buck comes out of the brush only to find himself starring at me.
I got a couple pictures of him (what a difference the two sides of the road make), and he was back in hot pursuit of the doe.

Wow, Stina!

What a wonderfully background! Particularly on the right side of the image.

I love the way that the vegetation is rendered - so soft and finely textured. How beautiful!

Thank you, Tom. I wish I could've gotten a picture of the buck on that side of the road.
I did get a few pictures of him over there, but he never stopped to look at me again and the pictures were really bad. Oh well.

Been there, done that......thousands of times. That's "the norm", and good images are the exception. Whenever I see a nice photo of a deer posted here, I think of all the effort that went into it - all of the failures that had to happen before the success. That's what makes the good ones so special!

The bull in your image looks like he had shed his antlers fairly recently......did you happen to take that image in December or January?

Well done Stina. The environment of the doe is wonderful. She looks great. No wonder that handsome Buck is hanging around.:-)

Actually it was early spring before they started growing out. Thanks for the interesting info!

"The Elusive Whitetail Buck".
I spotted this beauty and decided to see how close I could get. It took the better portion of an hour to slowly crawl across the field. I got the shot and he never knew that I was there! Didn't move an inch. I'm sending the pic to National Geographic and am fairly certain that they will offer me a job as a world wildlife photographer. It's all downhill from here.
