    Hello. I'm starting to take photography a bit more seriously than I have in the past and any feedback will be appreciated. Thanks in advance. IMG_2668.jpg IMG_2624.jpg IMG_3505.jpg IMG_3503.jpg

    So nice. Whitetail deer have done well co-existing w/ humans. #2 is excellent. How close and what lens and camera? I wish they were around our place so I can photograph.

    The buck sure looks very thin. Do you have CWD at your location?

    Could be just the rut is at its height and he’s worn out fighting off rivals.

    Thank you for the kind words. #2 is my favorite as well. I'm currently using a Canon Powershot SX60HS. I was probably 15ish yards from her and zoomed to 247mm.

    That would be my guess too. I'm in a suburb of Detroit and most of the CWD cases are more towards the center of the state. The Michigan DNR seems to manage for the size of the herd, rather than for larger deer and Michigan has one of the largest concentrations of hunters in the country and not many of them are trophy hunters. So the result is we have a large number of deer, but the bucks don't usually get very big.

    You are lucky to have these close. We have Roe Deer around out area but have to travel a bit to get to the bigger, more majestic reds.

    Well, there are some semi domesticated/farmed ones but they don't count as wild.
