[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Though not sharp, but posted on TN partly blurred due to slow shutter speed, poor illumination & for being some what different otherwise (3D effect) in the natural surrounding.

I took this photograph of the female spotted deer in the midst of the morning fog from the Gypsy Safari. This deer was quietly standing in the cold winter season of Rajasthan.....least concerned about the tigers & leopards roaming all around. I just liked it :)

hello Subhash

as you wrote it gives a 3D effect this photo of the female spotted deer,
shot with fine POV to the deer and with excellent sharpness,
you know better than me your photographic gear Subhash
but i think your Nikkor 16-85mm lens is giving better image quality,

Hi Subhash

You are rightly saying that this image is not sharp and probably that was exaggerated
by an unkind crop as well. We have seen far better images from you my friend, but I do
understand your motivation for posting it anyhow. Brave as it was (chuckle). Actually I
am rather surprised how close this deer looks to the Greater Kude, from the neck area
upward; the ears, the face, and the head are almost identical.

Take care and have a great weekend MF.

Natural habitat is good, even the pose,could have composed well.
