Running Free on a Hill

I was in the middle of changing lenses when I noticed this deer. I was lucky to get a few shots.

You succeeded to catch a joyfull moment.(S)He seems to enjoy running free in the sun!

Excellent composition! We have *so* many deer just hanging around our house, I don't even think about taking their photo any more. That is a mistake on my part to be sure.

But they are beautiful candidates for photography, I do love to see them. The best are the little fawns, *so* cute to watch bouncing all around. Never get tired of watching them.

Even the sky is just lovely in your photo. Great capture. Hope you are feeling better!

And, your composition skills are just natural! This is beautiful...I can feel the bounce of this little guy as he treks across that golden field.

You must be a fast "shifter", because this came out very well.

Not sure if this was planned but I like how the deer remains camouflaged by not breaking the horizon in the shot... (run deer, run!)

Joanne said...

Oh! weren't you lucky... do you have many deer around?

Piyush said...

Perfect timing there James and a nice shot too.

Wildlife is so stunning. Two years ago, I startled a red fox riding my bike just south of 15th street in Topeka, Kansas.

You could not have planned that shot any better. God sent that deer along to make your day... and a great shot!

You sure were. About a month ago I saw some deer right up the road in the San Bernardino National Forest and they scurried out of view while I was changing lenses!

Your deer is absolutely beautiful, prancing along with its little white tail in the air. What a gorgeous scene.

Surely a moment worth to remember. Thank you as well much for the much needed escape back home. Please have a nice Wednesday.

When I see an animal running free like this I am reminded that it is they who are the real natives to the place. We humans are the newcomers, particularly us palefaces. Nice photograph.

Lucky you. I've seen many a doe in Pa. and in my mother's area of Washington, and even here, but never a stag...guess they stay well-hidden.

Thérèse said...

Lucky you! I am only hoping this deer did not try to catch up with you for the photo!

JM said...

What a great capture! Love it, James.

Clytie said...

Absolute joy of freedom. Beautiful.

Ann said...

doh, a deer a female deer.

Currently, there is much talk here about a million dollar industry. Heli hunting if deers. Not Nice according to traditional hunters.

Lindy MacDuff said...

Fabulous, fortunate capture!

Regina said...

Gorgeous and amazing James.
Love the colors!

Have a nice day!

Oh that happens all the time I had that changing my lens for a telephoto lens so I could take a photo of a song thrush in my back garden & my dog shot out & he flow away, they never seam to be around when I am ready for them.
But I do love this shot.
