Hi Jon,

I think this is excellent.
It's certainly not easy to get the expression and position of both deer and bird just right, but it most certainly is here.
A perfect example showing this aspect of behaviour and combined with a wonderful sunlit background make this a winner in my book.
Superb.

Justin

Such a well captured moment, with the winking doe, and the expression and pose of the jackdaw, well detailed and a lovely dof.
Well taken.
