[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note [Polish]
The Roe Deer is a relatively small deer, with a body length of 95-135 cm, a shoulder height of 65-75 cm, and a weight of 15-30 kg.
Behaviour and life cycle

The Roe Deer attains a maximum life span (in the wild) of ten years. When alarmed, it will bark a sound much like a dog and flash out its white rump patch. Rump patches differ between the sexes, with the white rump patches heart-shaped on females and kidney-shaped on males. Males may also bark when attracting mates during the breeding season, often luring multiple does into their territory. The Roe Deer spends most of its life alone, preferring to live solitary except when mating during the breeding season. from wikipedia

Hi Marcin.
Very cute deer baby you have pictured. I like your composition, expressive POV and perfect reflection of the deer mood. DOF is selected excellently: whole image is in focus and sharp. Well done and TFS.

Hello Marcin

A wonderful close up portrait of this roe deer.Very good POV and DOF.The deer is in very good focus and stands out against the OOF BG. Very nice natural colours,with nice details .A very beautiful animal,very similar to the North American whitetail.TFS


Hi Marcin,
Great capture of this deer!
I like so much the way light covers the fur, and the beautiful details got on it.
The composition used is so good, the same as the contrast between the animal and the white background.
Congratulations, thanks for share and my best regards,

Hi Marcin,

A great capture of this roedeer,maybe a bit on the dark side( a bit underexposed,when shooting in snow its a good habit to add + 1,5 to 2 steps),but well portraited with good sharpness,

Muy buena captura Marcin con agudeza y excelente foco.
Los detalles se perciben muy marcados con agradable iluminación que brinda suaves tonos contrastantes con el fondo nevado.
Me gusta la combinación entre el encuadre elegido y el punto de vista captado.
Una interesante presentación... gracias por compartirla.
Un cordial saludo desde Buenos Aires... Ricardo

Very good capture Marcin with sharpness and excellent focus.
The details are perceived very marked with pleasant illumination that offers soft tones contrasting with the snowy bottom.
I like the combination between the elected framing and the captured point of view.
An interesting presentation... thank you for sharing.

Hello Marcin,
Whow, what a beautifull portrait. Eyes so perfect, sharpness bg too.
For me super.

Salut Marcin
C'est une superbe photo de ce chevreuil.
La composition est trčs belle et le niveau de détails sur l'animal est élevé.
Bien vu, en général, quand on l'aperçoit, c'est pour voir son derričre blanc s'enfuir.
Merci et au revoir...JP

Nice warm shot with good POV nice catchlight and well composed good background tfs rgds Necip.
