Just a lovely capture of this handsome buck.. perfect pose, lighting and compo. Great shot, Debra. I tried to post a comment two days ago but it wouldn't go through so I'm hoping this time for better luck..

Thank you Heather for your feedback. The buck was not going to let the doe get to far from him. I have had trouble recently as well. Seems to be working ok now.

Debra Plett

Thanks Jeff, he was a good looking buck for sure.

Terrific compo Debra. Great attitude of the beautyful buck. I would guess it was cloudy but the image is dam luminous. Good for a Chrismast card.

Thank you for feedback Yves, this one was taken just before I took the picture of the Doe. However, at that moment this rising sun was behind a cloud bank and he was at a different angle as well. He did give me a nice stance though before trying to catch the doe.

Shortly after sunrise I spotted this young doe and buck engaging in a game of hide and seek amongst a cluster of spruce trees. They allowed me to take a couple of pictures and then curled up in the snow only to disappear under the spruce bows.
