My wife and I moved from the city to the country recently, in preparation for our retirement a couple of years from now.

This past Monday as I was walking the dog at 6:30 am, three deer walked out of the bush, one at a time. I was able torun back to the houseto fetch my camera and by the time I came back, two of the deer had moved into shadows under a tree.

This one however, simply stood still, looking inquisitive in the morning sun.:-) My shutter speed was1/400. It then bounded away at high speed and all I got from that werea series of blurry photos (1/400 didn't do the trick). Thanks for looking. Cheers, Dan

A strong wildlife feeling came to my senses viewing this shot. It is like the kind of shot in the National Geographic. Very well composed and framed, nothing less or more. Very natural exposure with good tonal control. The gaze was timely captured. He must be showing up his calmness to hide the terrific fear in him. On the whole, 'simplicity is beauty' is what that came to front of my mind. I was like standing in the wildnerness where you took this shot while viewing this shot.

Beautiful shot Dan! Yeah, if you're living in the country, don't leave the camera at home. I'm green with envy for you. Congratulations on your coming retirement and enjoy your new abode when you make the final move out of suburbia....cheers...Don

Beautiful capture, Dan! That deer is watching youclosely for the least sign of threat. The lighting is excellent. Country life is great isn't it?
