well done .. like you said its a steep learning curve doing wildlife ..I am learning as well and I am enjoying it..keep up the good work..
Nice shot again .. hard to photograph deer and yes they do jump I have followed some in the fields and they skip like kangaroo. so I believe you :-)
Well caught they are fast.... I have try a few times to catch dear in woods and its hard..i found some monday in a nature reserve..look here http://kilm53.smugmug.com
