AMAZING! What a great shot. I was gob-smacked when I clicked on the thumbnail adn saw this. I said out loud, 'Oh dash, what a jolly good photo' (expletives removed!!!)

Well done!

What amazing timing, all the result of planning I'm sure.
As for the sky it makes such a superb backdrop to the picture. Isn't it great when all the elements come together and you have a camera ready for action.
Thanks for sharing.
If this doesn#t do well there's no justice!

I can't work out if hes 'kneeling' on the fence or in mid jump. Maybe it would be better if you explained ...or maybe it's just me.
Good capture either way, much more interesting than the usual stag shots.

Hee hee, brill Phil. This made me smile - really captivating image Smile
17 Apr 2005 1:37AM
Thanks for the kind comments. The photo was taken with 100-400 zoom at 400mm. I had noticed where the deer were crossing the fence so parked my vehicle at the appropriate spot and used it as a hide. This stag was just taking off when I captured him.
Best wishes

Wow! - this is great. Did he actually clear the fence?

Thanks for all the kind comments.
Yes, he cleared the fence easily, obviously a much younger stag than myself!!
