Hi Paul. this poor looking Sika deer looks a bit sad. Let hope its better now. You were able to get a good close up , with good detail and colours in the fur. Well done TFs.

Just love the play on words!
This is an excellent close up showing the appealing facial features and the soft texture of the fur.

You have both an eye and a heart of the deer. I can tell you are close to nature by the looks on the faces of those which you image. It is almost as if they know you in some way...Very nice clean, sharp image Paul!

In spite of her handicap she looks very beautiful! Excellent portrait in nice backlight with her looking straight at you. Very sharp details and lovely colours too.
Well done and a good title too!

The poor animal is so beautiful, I always feel powerless in front of their suffering. Beautiful shot the same, Paul, with very nice light caressing her ears. The light is subtle and superb, the grass makes a beautiful background and this female might still be alive. Hope that she is and thank you for this beautiful post,

Wonderful close-up shot of this cute Deer and to think of it being lame is so sad. Very neat and sharp image with natural colours and sharp details. Beautiful lighting and well handled exposure. I like your POV and the composition. Kudos.

I missed this excellent picture with so much expression. It is somehow so touching to look at this female, we just feel like helping her somehow. Excellent sharpness on the animal, nice blurred and fine green background. You are also an excellent animalphotgrapher
