  1. I guess this is a young specimen that has still to learn about how to hide...

    Nice shot. They can exhibit variable behavior -- I've had them look at me as if to say "What do you want?" or "Why are you standing in my path?" Other times, they sniff the breeze and run. I never know what to expect from the next one. I guess that's part of the challenge and the fun.

    Very nice capture Christian. I've seen (and taken) more than a few deer shots, and this one sits right in there with the best.

    Well done. :smile:
  5. Thanks. This is a herd that strives in a Provincial Park right off Montreal. It's a group of isalnds on which they can multiply without any predator. The deers are familiar with humans, but don't come much close.
  6. Christian,
    These guys know that standing still is potentialy "hiding". Most wildlife, particularly predators work off of movement, so essentially still equals invisible. Nice cpture. I am going to do my best to get a few similar soon.
