Woodland meeting by Alan Mattison

October being the height of the rut for Fallow Deer, makes it very easy to see and find them.The bucks run around, almost oblivious to humans,making a snorking sound threatening rival bucks into keeping their distance.

This couple were photographed, autumn 2011 in the woods at Marseillisborg in Denmark witha Nikon D700 and a 70-200mm lens witha 17mm tc (340mm)

    Awesome. Perfect details and focus. Great light. It’s almost as if they were posing for you.

  • thank you, Jane ! they were not posing at all, infact the buck was running wild all over the place and it was just by chance that I caught him next to the doe long enough for a shot (1.5 secs !!)
