I thought I was spying on a momma deer and her babies yesterday.

But when I crept around to get a closer shot, I found they were there waiting. Maybe they were stalking me :roll:.

Very nice shots Frank. Looks like these were taken on a golf course. 70-200VR?

I took them with my 80-200/2.8 at the public golf course in Pacific Grove this weekend. I'm jazzed that you thought they were from the 70-200VR.

Frank, these animals look pretty healthy. They get so much attention in public places like this. Did you happen to have any cracked corn in your pocket? That's a sure way to get them to come around.

No, I make it a point not to feed the critters I'm trying to shoot... other than hummingbirds, of course.
Using food as a lure takes the fun out of nature photography, and instills bad behaviors in the beasties.

OK now I can see them beautiful animals aren't thy Frank, even those these on the course are looked at as annoyances
Glad pbase finally let you see the deer, Mike. Yes, I think they're lovely creatures, and I've never considered it a problem to share a golf course with them.

The one i like the most is the last one, the deers look more relax than the first two where they look on guard ready to go away.
