Follow the Leader

Hmm, good title, but what can an old man like me do, eh? Follow that leader? Over a barbed wire? I think this exercise is for younger people or deers like the ones in your picture.
Wonderful image, Rick, as if it would be a series of pictures taken without forwarding the film. And no need to have a viedo camera or music: just look at it and let your thoughts go, the music comes from alone...
Congratulations, a masterpiece!

Superb shot, looks as though it should be inserted in a zoetrope ! Top work all round.

Very good wildlife action photo. Real feeling of speed. Nice composition, BG and sharpness of details. It looks very good as all three deers are in different stage of jump.

You live in a beautiful country and you spend so much time shooting pictures it is fantastic! I love those beautiful deers jumping, what a nice pov you captured. It is very springy too, with superb natural colours of that time of the year. Thank you Rick, great shot once more!

This is great!! It looks like the first one flew over the fence - not just jumped. Wonderful to see the three in different positions and stages of their jumps. Great timing to get this of all three.

I love how it seems a progresive jump. Details and sharp are great. Natural colours too.

This is the best action shot I've seen here I guess! Beyond the superb subject and finish, I love the perfectly vertical projection of them in their shadows! Although I don't get it how, was that really 7 in the morning? Anyway, favs theme right away, TFS!

In a textbook on the beginnings of photography and movie making, there is a whole chapter which this reminds me of...but for the life of me I cannot remember it...You know how we as children drew on a stack of papers...little drawings but each one leading to the next..then we flipped the pages and voila! We had made a movie so to speak. This is almost what it looks like...somehow you have caught a movie in one image...Waaaay cool Ivan (*Hmmmm Walkabouts I know. I have many good friend in the wilds from OZ)!OK We'll call you rick today!:-)

Wow! What a great capture, Rick!
This could almost be a series of shots of the same deer merged into one!
I love the poses, showing all the different stages of jmping over the fence.
Great light and exposure.
Very well done,

Wonderful shot of this trio jumping over the barbed fence for cover - and they look so graceful in mid-air. It seems almost like a film shot with 3 action moments and stages of jumping. Great timing and skill. Very impressive sharpness, colours and illumination. Excellent POV and composition. Kudos.
