Oh deer....

By robs    
There really isn't much to say, except it isn't every day you get to photograph a deer using an ultrawide.

Just after this shot he leaned forward and licked my lens... cleaning it was a bit of a chore! This is the last of the photographs from Monday's wee jaunt out in a general Glencoe-wards direction! Not sure where the next trip out will be, but I am hoping for one more before setting off on a large international type trip!

Fantastic...I bet you get a lot of people asking if this has been cut n pasted Wink I know of this deer and he's becoming very famous on that bit of car park,unfortunatly I haven't been able to stop and shoot him myself Sad
He looks very well fed...I hope he's watching his junk food intake! lol

I had never spotted them before myself - I usually fly past the spot on my way to Glencoe - saw the deer and figured it would be worth pulling in!

Great opportunistic shot! Or perhaps foolhardy...
Nice one, and great composition

Wow! Wondeerful shot! Is that the Glenfiddich 15 year old Solera Reserve or the 18 yr old Ancient Reserve???

The now deceased beggar of the viewpoint above Loch Tulla, he was shot several times with an air rifle and left to die apparently. A sad end for such a fine beast.
