As always when photographing Deer, I use a telephoto lens so that I don’t invade their space. Whilst it looks like I’m only a few meters away, I’m actually about 30 meters away. This was taken during the rut, so there was even more reason to keep my distance. I was lying low in the long grass, keeping nice and quiet and just hoping for a good photo opportunity. That is all you can do, but thankfully more than one opportunity came. That was a really good day!
