This is lovely and ladylike. (Even if you have to tell me that this is a male!)

and I like the way that the EXIF data shows that hte camera responded to the situation, giving f/5.6 with a lens that only opens up to f/5.7...

A wonderfully captured moment just as the Deer turns to give you the OK to grab this beautifully illuminated image. "A real gem"

I've never heard of a Puku, but what a beauty. Are they termite mounds in the b/g?

Love the rim lighting and that raised hoof is so typical of animals who freeze in mid step.
