Great environmental shot with an amazing touch of implied action, well done

Thank you Clifford, I wished that the deer had been a bit closer but the bucks catch wind of you and they are gone.

Yves Langlois

Amazing scenety with a strong moody autumn expression. For me the deers are not the subject here. They are the important liiving thing needed in that kind of shot though. The overall compo and colours is a great success here Debra.

Debra Plett

Agreed Yves, I had wished I was closer but I didn’t want to get in the way or disturb these two bucks. The scenery is very nice when you get a mix of frost and autumn colours. Thanks very much for the feedback always appreciated.

Heather Mellon

A great long shot, Debra. The background in this one is beautiful and I think you got a really good capture of a day in the life of these young bucks. Very nicely done.

Debra Plett

Thanks very much Heather. It was a very long reach I wished the deer had been a bit larger in the composition but the early morning fall colours added to the overall image.


Yes it is a good environmental Shot as Clifford had sead I some times see them at work on the base nices to see the

It is hard to tell due to the long field grass but in one of these photos two younger white-tailed bucks were having some fun sparring with each other. At no point were they overly aggressive just messing around as they wondered along the bush line eventually moving into the bush. There was a third much younger buck watching and learning from a distance. Photo taken just after sunrise on a cloudy morning. I had trouble editing the noise in these images.
