Thought I might just hear your opinions on this quick shot i did yesterday. Find it quite pleasing myself, therefore i need your comments ;)

Haven't been doing animal shots before, what's to aim for?

(And which one do you prefer?)
I prefer the first one Dr. Jones, looks like a little less noise...

This was an interesting encounter. If I moved, the deer moved the other way, always keeping that same stalk of grass between us..... It was as if she was trying to hide behind the grass

That doe is truly a master of camouflage!  I can totally visualize this happening... photographing deer is never as simple as you'd think, especially when they think they're invisible behind a piece of grass.  Nice shot!

Cheers!

Very cute. I love deer, and their funny little antics. Here is a similar shot of my own:
