    Steve,

    That's a brilliant series perfectly executed (unlike the fly).

    Looking at the backgrounds, you managed to shift position a little without spooking the deer too, if I were wearing a hat, I'd take it off to you.

    Well done,

    Nice shots Steve. Did you use a telephoto or do they know it's not hunting season? We had a deer within the city that loves the grounds of the cemetery and although it was behind a fence did not feel the need to run when I approached. I suspect that the deer liked the area because I saw it again or another in the same area weeks later.

    Well done,
    Thank you dave, most appreciated. To give a little background as to how i got these shots .........................


    I took them with a canon 40D and 300 f/4L lens wide open.

    I took them at the local park where the deer are wild, but most tolerant of people.(getting close is sooooo important in wildlife photography.) I've been friends with these animals for several years and i think they know me, as well as i understand their body language, allowing me to get extreamly close. I was about 30 feet or less from this fawn and he was very comfortable with me being there. The fly was just a fantastic bonus to the shoot. Words can't explain how much fun it is to get that close and capture photos like this.

    Thanks again everyone and glad you liked them.

    Just Beautiful, I particulary love the last shot. Talk about Bambi. It's perfect.
