I saw this buck standing on the side of the highway sunday morning about 8. I drove past it at about 50mph before i realized what it was. I looked in my rearview mirror and it was still standing there.. I thought.... No wayyyyyy it's gonna stay there but i thought what the heck... I found a place to turn around a few hundred yards ahead... pulled in.... got my FZ 30 ready..... turned around.... camera out the window.... closer closer.... better shoot..... NO CARD IN THE CAMERA.... by this time i am even with the deer ... it's no more than 30 yards away..... i reach into my case... find a spare card... incert it.... raise the camera AGAIN... and he politely stands there and poses for 15 shots before another car comes along and he decides it's too crowded around here and starts heading off into the rice field... THAT'S when the DOE jumped... THAT'S why he had been so patient... he was trying to get a GIRLFRIEND....

Hope you enjoy the story .... ya really cant make this stuff up... and the picture.

Al, now that is somewhat of a believeable story,, as the proof is in the pudding. Great shot. Maybe he thought, what the heck, you're a gator. :G

Great shot and opportunity, wish I had your luck - Ronny
(ps the luck is that it stayed waiting for its photo shoot, not the shot itself)

Thank you all for the kind words..... I really do believe that the story of these pictures that we post are even more important than the technical aspects of getting the shot... Just my opinion of course and i have learned VOLUMNS from reading the posts about how to improve the final product... I just happen to enjoy what the photographer was experiencing when it was taken.
