Excellent shot for your first post. Welcome to the Cafe!! I second Paul's request. If you have been looking at the Cafe, you know that we are a friendly bunch that likes to be on a first name basis with each other. And, we like to get to know each other.
In any case, we look forward to more shots like these. :wink:
Welcome to the forum Brian. That first shot is really nice, you did a good job of isolating the subject and preventing anything from creeping into the frame that would give away the controlled environment.
It's interesting what a difference the environment makes as far as how approachable deer are. When hiking I'm often amazed at how much closer you can get when in a park where hunting is never allowed as opposed to lands that allow hunting certain parts of the year.
