I think you have done well to have chosen a combination of subject distance, focal length and aperture to achieve such depth of field that the main subject is in focus and the background is not. In particular, you must be congratulated for focussing sharply on the eyes of the deer.

However, that said, I think the deer in the foreground does not stand out clearly from the deer in the background, even though they are out of focus. In my opinion, there needs to be more colour contrast between the main subject and the background, so I think you should have changed your viewpoint so that the background was the dark green of the trees instead of the brown of other deer.
