The fresh snow on the young buck is a wonderful accent, Paul. Beautiful image.

What a sweet young buck in a lovely winter setting, Paul. I love his tentative body language as he checks things out.

Nicely done Paul. Agree with Carol on the tentativeness. Amazing for us in the UK as to how close you were without it getting skittish. (would be in a personal wonderland to be that close...a few times as a young lad, 7-11 years old, I could get to 2-3m by stalking wild Fallow deer in my local woods, but I was a lot smaller, and probably didn't stink of perfume...LOL. ). Nice one, and like Ron also said, a niceness with that snow on the back too. Much to enjoy
Make your life spectacular!

I stalked this deer on a peninsula tip where I know the main trail that the deer use to leave the peninsula in the morning about 1-2 hours after sunrise. I waited (somewhat concealed) at a point where this one would approach me.  I was surprised it did.
