Default Backyard Deer

Looked out my living room window and 10 feet away a deer was feeding perfectly framed with Mount Shasta in the background. We get them often, but never this close. Note the deer fencing in the background for the edible garden. HDR as close to the real thing to get the very difficult dynamic range.

What a view! And to have dear wander into it is altogether too much. I hope your hip is mending well. My wife will have knee replacement surgery the 30th of this month.

It is hard to take an HDR shot when a moving subject is involved. You seem to have pulled it off rather well.

LOL! They sure can do a number on a garden, not sure I'd want them in my backyard, if it had anything other than pinon pine trees and whatever wild grass that can manage to grow under them.

Cor, what an amazing view from a living room! And the deer makes it even more fantastic. Sure beats rural Oxfordshire
