Oh deer

There were several deer in and amongst a group of cabins. I was able to get close enough to get this shot.
Cropping can make all the difference! I cropped out the distractions and simplified the composition. Leaving space for the deer's line of sight was important to me. It adds a bit of intrigue - we want to know more and it is also calming.


  1. I love the simplicity of this composition.

  2. The cropping did make this more appealing! Bokeh take up most of the real estate here, making me wonder what the deer is thinking as it watches. Looks like you have the more rugged-looking whitetail. I see a few of them in my corner of Pennsylvania, but mostly a variety with a longer, thinner face. That intrigues me, too.

    1. Thank you for your comment. I love to learn from you and others about what you see, like the deer in your area...and even how you see this image.

  3. The intimacy and unusual angle brings something really fresh to wildlife photography - it's like we are with the deer and not just looking at it - wonderful.
