Close encounter of the "deer" kind.
Posted By: SouthShoreRob, 02-09-2009, 02:52 PM

Kids wanted to play in backyard yesterday so off I went on my winter walk alone - and quietly I might add - at the local nature park. Veered off the common path and headed out to the back where I stumbled upon a small (8 to 10) herd of deer going about their business. This particular animal was actually so close to me that I became mildly uncomfortable. Shot with new K20D, and FA* 200mm. PP'd but not cropped!

Great shot! You must have been able to touch it almost, didn't you?

Thanks everyone.

Indeed, it came to within about 4 metres of where I stood - out in the open - and wasn't the least bit shy.
