[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This little buck was fearless today...he approached me as if wanting his photo taken...until Screech, a tiny little kitten no bigger than a handful, mewed. That made my young buck hop to momma.
The whole time Momma was watching from just a few feet away. She, however, was not keen on the concept of having her beauty preserved for TrekNature participants. :)

Once again, this is a white-tail or Odocoileus virginianus texanus.

Hi Angelina

Lovely close-up with good detail - I especially like the nose and eyes.


Ohhh Angelina,
this one is so cute,
I like so much his splendid glance, excellent colors, focus and point of view,

How cool is that....Your getting so famous now the nature world is requesting you be the one to take the official portrait. How much do you charge...a lick of salt?:-) Very cool..

Hello Angy,
what was a little kitten doing in a field?!
Ha Ha! Your note made me laugh... sometimes little animals are very annoying when your trying to photograph something!
A lovely portrait of this fine Deer.
The POV is very good and I love the way his/her ears are pointing in opposite directions.
Nice detail in the fur that is helped along by the excellent sharpness.
Well done Angy,

Hello Angelina,
I liked this! Nice picture!
Soft and beautiful colors; excellent sharpness and luminosity.
Well done!

Tnsolito ma bello il taglio per questa tua foto,
ottima la nitidezza e il dettaglio.
Un saluto Piero

Hi Angelina,
what a lovely looking fellow you have uploaded.Deer are certainly animals well liked by most people including me.This young fellow is so very innocent looking and you have caught him well.Very nice detail and colour are the strong points for this photo and the weak one is the focus seems a little soft on my monitor.My monitor is one of those new 27" types and everything that looked very sharp isn't so much so unless I lower the resolution of it some,doing so makes webpages look not so good.I have tried a workshop for your photo to see what difference it makes when I view on my machine,I hope you find it useful. Tfs Imagine a small buck being frighten by a kitten-hilarious! Bob

Hi Angelina.
Wonderful close-up with great sharpness, colour and detail. Huge big eyes looking straight at you, beautiful image.


Hi Angy
Very cute shot. Nicely composed sharp portrait. Good contrast and nice natural surrounding

Today it's COLD here. It is -22*C not counting the wind chill factor. COLD COLD COLD.
Great close-up. This time I'll ask you: "How did you get so close"?
EXCELLENT frame; no further comments.
Your buddy from the North,

Hi Angy
This is a great shot of a young buck. Great exposure and very good focus and sharpness showing very good detail. Good pose I like the way he's looking right at you.
Great job!!!! Thanks for sharing

Hi Angelina,

really well done
thank you

Hi Angelina,
Beautiful catch of this little buck, he is so lovely! great shot and well presented. Very well done.

Am I ever jealous! This is incredible and has made it's way to number one of my favorites that you've done.

You have excellent details of the face, managed to capture the curiosity of this fellow, and the eyes are so gentle. This small buck reminds me of Nubby - and make the most of him, friend.

Just absolutely wonderful - I hope to see more of this youngster.

Hi Angy,

A beautiful young one who seems as curious about you as you are of him. He is posing beautifully. His face is wonderful - I just love that nose. The colors are very natural - a lovely portrait.


so ciute shot;-) very nice photo

This is a great shot Angie. Sorry I missed it when it was posted. I was visiting my parents over Christmas and their computer is very slow. I just received my new camera (Canon 5D) and will be posting photos with it soon. Happy belated New year!

Great shot! The little buck looks very cute. The eye contact and the sparkle in the eyes also look great.
