The Deer of Mesopotamia

In the wild: The Mesopotamian fallow deer came close to shut off completely if wild specimens were not found by a miracle. Today, thanks to recent reintroductions, the deer found wild in the arid mountains in Iran. It differs from the common deer with a darker coat and a white ring around the muzzle.

At the zoo: Thanks to a backup program on a large scale, deer are now found in Mesopotamia in the zoo and breed regularly. The Tierpark this species has for many years and the breeding group s'aggrandit regularly. Other cervids such as deer or deer of Eld pig live in adjoining pens. Collection of deer Tierpark is one of the most important zoo in Europe with that of Zoologisher Garten park and the High Touche.

Instead of shooting:

Welcome to the Animal Park CERZA of Lisieux in Normandy.

More than 800 wild animals live peacefully in parole on 60 hectares of forests and valleys of the park. Explore the 120 species from 5 continents through two circuits of walking tour and see the animals in natural conditions. Everything here was designed for the welfare of animals.

Ciao Serge, my today neigbour, superb portrait of wonderful creature, excellent sharpness, splendid light and colors, very well done my friend, have a good Sunday, ciao Silvio

lovely shot Serge. I would love to see the shot taken at f/2.8 here, a bit less foreground and a bit more space above the deer! A bit more aggressive sharpening could be an option too! Have a great day MF!

Bonjour Serge,
Tu sembles avoir pris ton image en contre-plongée, du moins ton image en donne l'impression. Une créature majestueuse qui ne semble pas faire grand cas du photographe! Bonne présentation décentrée et naturelle, la netteté pourrait être améliorée un brin.
Bom dimanche

Cher Serge,
Ta photo est magique! Je me souviens du filme "Bamby" de Wald Disney.Mais je suis d´accord avec George...Oui, ta photo manque d´un peu plus de netteté et les couleurs peuvent aussi être améliorée.J´ai fait un WS tout en espèrant que tu l´aime.Merci pour partager ton travail avec nous.

Hello Serge,

Impressive looking deer with a nice rack & still retaining spots into adulthood. A choice, low angle in fine light has captured the finer features of this impressive aninal. Very well done!



Buen encuadre y bonita pose para este gran mamífero.
Saludos Serge: J. Ignasi.
