Hello Jason

It's a bird? It's a plane? No it's superdeer!
Great in flight shot of this white tail showing how they can leap 10m a bound.
The composition is very good considering the quick pano action needed to capture this.
Lovely colours too.
A wonderful job.


Nice capture of the deers Jason,
There are some distracted foreground objects, but it is a challenge to capture a moving object in such surroundings.

hello Jason

WOW ! what a great shot you did of this White-Tailed Deer
on his jump or as Rob is saying on his flight (lol),
you was as fast as the deer to take him in image at that position,
lovely luminosity of the image with great sharpness,

i'll go and create a personaal theme on the White-Tailed Deer
starting with your image, i love this kind of photo, TFS alot


"Flew" is right. That one is absolutely airborne. Great capture.

Evelynn : )

Nicely captured Jason. I know how hard it can be to get a still of them...but to catch them jumping as this is even better! Very nice image!

Hi Jason,

What great timing to get this shot! Amazing to get the one with all feet off the ground. Even though it was a difficult shot to get you managed very good detail. I would like it even more without the branches on the right side but I don't know what cropping would do to the wonderful picture.

Hello Jason,
What splendid action you have captured in this composition. You have captured them in full flight with good details and excellent colors. Very nice work Jay, thank you for sharing.
