Curious Deer

Spring Doe


I finally had some time to get out and do some more nature photography, after being cooped up inside from plenty of snow and pretty cold weather this winter. Had a phenomenal day this past Friday, where I sat out in a field full of deer, and had each one come within about 20-30 feet for a curious look at the strange long-snouted creature sitting there making clicking noises.


One deer in particular gave me some of the most exquisite shots I've ever had of deer. Hope you enjoy!

Very nice!  I particularly like the expression and pose of the 3rd shot, I wonder it it might look better as a portrait-oriented crop?
EOS 1D X, EOS M, and lots of lenses

Great photos!
Yes, number 3 has an interesting expression. Could be a candidate for the thread: "Talkin'to me?"  :)

I have it pretty luck with deer. The firing range here is silly with deer.... some days I have counted over 100 of them... and they are very used to people....

The last image was shot with a wide angle lens :)
