Hi Goldy,

Hi Goldy,

This is such a beautiful scene. I love the deer in this wonderful setting. The composition with the rock, the animal and the greenery is superb.


What an unusual pose in such an unlikely place Goldy. And shot at a low angle gives it even more mystic. Tres' cool...as us'n westerners say in our not so good French way!

Hi Goldy,
The lush green background moving from dark to light, is visually very appealing. A great backdrop for a good picture.

Excellent picture of Sambar in its natural habitat, Goldy.
The rock-strewn river bed and the green forest form a wonderful frame for the subject.
With its tail tensed up, the animal seems to be curious about something it has seen in the distance.
Well done and TFS.

Hi Bro,

Hi Goldy,
Nice capture of this Sambar with an interesting surrounding. TFS

Hello Goldy
I've never seen this species before. The Sambhar has darker fur than the deer around here. It's great to see him in his natural environment, and that he blends in well to his surroundings. Good notes.
TFS Janice
