[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I've just spent a week in Devon on Dartmoor.
This part of the country is a well visited place by people from all over, if you look hard enough you can still find places where people seldom go. I did, I found deer tracks one afternoon so the next morning at 5.30 i got up went to this place, I waited for about an hour and a half, it was so worth it. These animals are free to roam the many square miles of the moors. One thing about these deer and I'm not sure if its the same for any other deer but when this one heard my mirror swing up to take this picture it barked like a dog at me befor running off.
I hope you all like this picture as i feel it was well worth the waiting :-)

Salut Trevor
It was indeed well worth the wait! I really like the colours in this photo. The background is interesting too. Is is natural or have you done some pp work here? I really like the way the light has caught the deer's face. Well done.
