Thanks very much Jeff

Yves Langlois

Super shot in showing the proud buck. I expanded the shot to check and he got a nice face and a proud attitude. Good lighting here and colours are great.

Thanks very much Yves, I was excited and felt humbled that I was given the opportunity to photograph this amazing animal.

Heather Mellon

The expression he gave you speaks volumes. Another excellent capture of these bucks during the rut, Debra. Excellent composition and detail.. and the pose you caught him in is captivating!

Debra Plett

Thanks Heather he sure was captivating.

Harold Fleming

Excellent photo, Deb. Nice texture in the coat. Nicely formed rack on him. With the right background I would have used the rack as a frame for another photo. You may have had to get closer though. There I go thinking again.

Debra Plett

Hi Harold thanks for your thoughts, great idea. I think I would have to get a longer lens and be a bit braver. This guy was keeping a very close eye on me. Maybe if he weren’t so full of testosterone I could get a bit closer without getting run over. I will definitely be thinking about that. Thanks again.

This Buck was not about to leave, he was being very protective and attentive to a Doe.
