For myself I htink that the previous deer-picture had moore attention in it how they investigated the surrounding, but on this the deer are clearer. Both good pictures.

Brilliant shot, Greg. Good colors, sharp and good DOF, perfect!!
Love those graceful and elegant animals. That luster of the fur is so good that it looks as if they have been brushed.

hi greg I dont think this is one of your better pictures - it lacks a bit of punch and detail - which is rare with your pictures. regards matey. ian

Very good....I just find the band across the picture is distracting....otherwise you captured the deer just fine.

Hi Howard

Its a concrete barrier, to much work to take it out, but I agree.

Hi Ian

Shooting deer here is a bit tough, they do not let folks get close, probably has to do with hunting! Wink I will see if I can get a better shot. Thanks

Hi Peter

I agree I to like the ones in the brush better.

Biggest birds I've ever seen! I'm gone for a few days, and you're uploading deer now. But still the high quality that I see in your bird shots. I'll go back and look at your other new ones later.
Very Cool, Greg....Now that is some kinda Sharp!!!
Well Done!!!
Click to ya.....Cheers,
