Good evening everyone.

Thank you all for your, C&C's for Eye of the Owl.
Tonights upload was taken last month, whilst out with Martin(martinjp) at Dunham Massey in Cheshire.
This beautiful deer was lay by the path in the forest, just watching everyone pass by. He allowed me to get within 3 feet of him, with my little Fuji 12MP compact. This made me laugh afterwards because there was a chap stood futher away with a 500mm lens!! I felt so honoured to be near the stag, especially when I sat down on the log beside him.
He never flinched and just kept looking at me as I quietly chatted to him.
Martin and I must have been there half an hour with the deer and I didn't want to leave. It was one of those precious moments that you just don't want to end.

I hope you like him as much as I do.

Yet again, please accept my apologies for just clicking. I'm always really tired when I get home from work but hopefully will have more time at the weekend.

How lucky you were to meet with such a delightful deer. Looks as though you caught him as he returned the chat or is it possibly a smile as you shared a joke? Makes a wonderful image. So nice having you back with us.

What a picture! and what a priviledge to sit beside him . Perhaps he was just getting his breath back after a fight over females ? Smile Lovely work xx

A great image, Bev, and what a fascinating story to go along with it. I like your aside about the chap with the long telephoto lens - made me laugh. Like your capture very much - looks as if you are sharing a joke together.
