Hello Mikael,
What I'm so surprised about is taht you actually managed to get a sharp image @1/400 sec..
Very beautiful light. Birds are perched and mammals are in flight in your gallery:-).
Well done

Hej Micke,
this is a well known sight for me when used to to hunt but that was 10 years ago, these my only weapon is the camera.
Beautiful summer evening light, I'm longing for that light.
You managed to take "bocken" in avery nice action with good sharpness and nice exposure.
Well done mf,

Hi Mikael
Quite some timing to catch this one
The light is gorgeous and the deer pin sharp
Would have cropped a bit of the left side so as to have the deer a bit more off-center

Hi Mikael!

This is wildlife photography at best! I like the dynamics in the picture created by the movment of the "flying" deer very much. Your title suits the subject perfectly well and the tiny bright line around the animal created by the backlight is so well seen.

Kind regards

Hi Mikael.
Simply great idea, subject and picture. You have used border between lights and darks fantastically. Silhouette of the charming animal is looked greatly. Timing is outstanding as well as the reproduction of the scenery. My compliments for so non ordinary work and its sharing.

Hi Michael,
Wonderful image showing the grace & form of the running deer famously :)
I note the great warm color and beautiful back-lighting effect..
The dark BG contrasts well with the sunlit FG too..
Well done!
