Thanks guys.

This was taken at a conservation area near Toronto. The population of white tail deer there is booming. Those guys were pointing their cameras to an open field with more deer at about 200-300 feet away but they didn't realize this little guys was just feet away!

Never thought I'd be able to take pictures of deer with a 50/1.8 II, but man was I wrong. These city dwellers are used to humans not threatening them, living within the reach of the underground. Photo has been manipulated to remove some twigs from the top.
Yes, sometimes urban deer will let you get quite close, and if you sit quietly in your car, will come investigate.....

I live on a farm and quite often see a deer family by our dining room windows. But they usually flee away if one of us shows up on the deck. I know where they're coming from and hope one day to install a remote controlled camera to take some pictures :)

My attempt at attracting them is oats and barley and then they end up in my wife's flower bed. Ouch. Mine aren't too tame either but they come up to the bird feeder at night looking for seed that's scattered, especially in winter.

Hi Jack.
I'm so sorry to hear that you lost all the 'brownie points' you earned from the floor and that fabulous stone planter, :eek: :'( but fancy attracting deer when your wife has a flower garden! :eek: ::) :)

Cheers, Graham.
