LENS: NIKKOR AF-S 70-300mm VR @ 155 mm

Wild Columbian blacktailed fawn photographed near Gibsons on the Sunshine Coast, British Columbia, Canada.

I took this photograph on July 19, 2010. I was waiting for an eagle to arrive at its nest when this fawn approached, seemingly unconcerned at my presence.

I’m a retired stationary engineer who lives on British Columbia’s scenic Sunshine Coast, which although on the mainland, can only be accessed by water or air – just the way we Coasters like it!

Wildlife and nature photography is my hobby and passion. My primary camera is a Nikon D90 and most of these photos are taken with a Nikkor AF-S 70-300mm VR lens.

I appreciate and try to answer all sincere comments.

  • Thanks Andrea. I never did photograph any eagles that day, but this made up for it I think.
