[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Resuming our exploration of Waterton Lakes National Park.
The location here is the Upper Waterton Lake Shore, as seen in this previous photo on Trek Lens here.
This young buck was quite eager to pose, displaying curiosity at the sight of visitors. My first few shots were rushed, until I realized that they were not going to run away. I got quite a few nice poses.

Uncropped, straight from the camera (yes, I got that close!) adjusted in curves and downsized.

Hello Otto,
refreshingly lively greetings from Waterton Lakes - with a skilfully made portrait, well composed into the landscape, the pleasantly red colours and furry parts of the buck perfectly highlighted. Thank you!
My best regards,

Wow, nice pose, Otto. The shot is nice, but the whole Waterton slide show is remarkable. I especially like the shot of the bear.
