This was taken very early in the morning at Richmond Park last year. The sun had just risen and cast a beautiful golden light through the mist.
This female Red Deer stood stock still, alert to all the noises (which were probably all camera shutters!).

Thanks for all the comments/votes on yesterdays pic and for Jonah's UA and Adrians UA for the frog pic. Cheers guys!

I hope you'll like this!

Very effective Joe, the silhouette, detail in the FG grasses and the colour all work together to make a very appealing image.

Thanks for taking the time to go through my PF and leave a comment, much appreciated.

This is exquisite Joe - wonderful light and the doe's silhouette is beautiful in those muted soft shades of brown. Timed and observed to perfection.

Sorry to comment again, but I just can't get over how amazing this photograph is. The light is perfect. The pose is perfect. The composition is perfect. Everything is perfect, nothing is wrong. I could write a whole essay about this picture just using the word perfect. You should be VERY proud of this Joe. Can't wait to go to Richmond Park with you sometime this winter (pls PM me on that) to try and replicate such a STUNNER!! I showed my Mum this, and she just stood there staring at it for about 2 minutes, in utter shock of how beautiful it is. It is wonderful, and I hope it's on your website Wink Deserves SO MANY awards. My POTW anyday!!! Congratulations on this being the best picture I have EVER seen on EPHOTOZINE!!!
