The Fallow Deer (Dama dama) is a ruminant mammal belonging to the family Cervidae.

The male is a buck, the female is a doe, and the young a fawn. Bucks are 140-160 cm long and 90-100 cm shoulder height, and 60-85 kg in weight; does are 130-150 cm long and 75-85 cm shoulder height, and 30-50 kg in weight. Fawns are born in spring at about 30 cm and weigh around 4.5 kg. The life span is around 12 years.

Fawn shot in Safaripark Beekse Bergen.

Handheld with IS through open window from car.

Rather big crop generating some noise and not razorsharp as well. The former reduced through blurring a bit the background, the latter through extra sharpening edges...

Hi Annick

What a pretty face!!! The pose of this cute youngster here is fantastic and you did terrific to capture it!
Somebody once told me that a photograph doesn't need to be sharp in order to be great...and here is applies perfectly!
Splendid work!

Bravo and TFS

Hi Annick.
Lovely pose of this fawn.
Good colour but not quite sharp on my screen.

Hello Annick,
I quite like that this image is not real sharp, it suits the sweet look of the Fawn. How sweet it is. Nice background colour too.

Hello Annick,
Very nice pose.Lighting,framing BG and harmonious colors are excellent.

I think I'm just drawn to the adorable today...and that is definitely adorable. Something about the photo makes me know that the fur would be so soft to touch.

Comme il est mignon, très beaux détails.

Hi Annick

This makes me want to go back to Richmond and start stalking deer again. This is such a sweet shot with the slightly inclined head and the detail of the large eye lashes. Just adorable. Lovely framing and light
