Roe doe in heather.

By justin c
Hi,

This is one of my favourites from a recent session spent photographing a Roe doe.
There's one particular area of heath that's particularly dense with flowering heather at this time of year and I've been hoping to photograph the deer in that particular spot for a number of years but unfortunately the deer have always chosen to feed elsewhere, this year however, I was in luck.
This one was taken very late in the day, at dusk.

As always a fine study of the Roe, superb eye and again those colours really set it off. Have to ask Justin were you camouflaged in purple for these to blend in mate

The colours are really beautiful and the dof is perfect to throw just enough fg and bg out of focus with excellent detail on the deer.
