I got one!

Posted by

Yesterday was really nice sunny day and just as I was shooting something in a very bright sunlight this wonderful animal appeared far away by the forest's edge.
Shame I had no time to adjust the camera settings at all before she disappeared, but I'm so happy I finally got a shot of a deer even if it's not the perfect shot. The next frame was bright and clear but she was not in it.

Nice to see you! I hope you enjoy seeing what I saw earlier.
Please, leave a comment so I know you have been here.

I got a colour spotlight, see it here.

I wonder who was more surprised, you or him!

@CElliottUK: I think I was. :) At first I thought I saw a big dog running there. :)

Oiva from Turku, Finland

Beautiful animal, which was probably also a little scared when you went to it territory!:-))Haleja.

Happy new week for both of you!

@Oiva: I think she was quite scared. :)

Curly from South Shields, United Kingdom

A very rare sighting, they are notoriously camera shy.

@Curly: I hope that when the summer comes and it's easier to move quietly in the forest I'll get better shots of them.

Christine from Ellemford, United Kingdom

I have never got one this close, a wow moment

Jeff from Pembroke Dock, United Kingdom

Lucky you !!, if I want to photograph a deer i've got to go to the supermarket and look for Venison .

@Jeff: Thank you. Somehow the venison in supermarket is not as cute as a deer in the forest. :)

Ari from Turku, Finland

Näitä ei näe ihan joka päivä, hieno bongaus!

@Ari: Täällä niitä asuu iso lauma tuossa yhdessä metsässä, että varmaan vois nähdäkkin joka päivä jos ehtis kaiken aikansa olla metsässä. Ainakin yksi työkaveri väittää päivittäin parvekkeeltaan näkevänsä kun nämä juoksee villeinä metsässä.

Ruthiebear from Titusville, NJ, United States

I am so happy for you that you were able to capture this lovely creature. SHe looks scared but almost blends in with the surroundings.

@Ruthiebear: Thank you. They do blend in with the trees very well.
