Nice shot, well captured. How did you manage to get so close.

On this location it's easy,
at day-time those fallow deers are resting and are to bussy in their minds with the (how do you call that in english) getting the females to their side
and the sexual feelings, (burling) that loud sound they make to the concurents.
so I entered this part of the woods where I think a 15 male deer's had their own part of the wood, and relaxing into some self made holes.
I noticed that you realy can approach them close ( I did the 6 meter) but he started to burling to me, and waving his head, so I made some more space between him and me Smile

also noticed, I had attached the cam onto the tripod, and made a fast shot without detaching the cam from tripod, so I lifted the tripod and placed it horizontal, at that point the deer looked at me if I was his concurent, so ueh... not a good plan to do that Smile
