Feeling lucky

Took the dog out early again this morning on a coldish, misty morning. Took the camera in the hope of seeing some stags. There were quite a few and I got some great shots. No mean feat with a dog in one hand, on the lead, and the camera in the other!
Well done for the lovely capture. If I took my dog stag hunting they would all be long gone!!

Wonderful! Not sure I could do this with Finlay as he would bark at the first sighting! Lovely capture! Fav!

Incredible capture! I love how the framing gives you a sense of "it was out in nature and I just happened to see it" feel. Amazing to see, no doubt!

@helenm2016 It's not actually hair, apparently, but a 'highly vascular skin' called velvet. There you go. Straight from Wikipedia!

@jyokota Thanks Junko. You got the scene precisely! Despite having been brought up in this area, it still tickles me to meet the deer so close to the village. Of course they can be a nuisance too as when they come into the village in winter they destroy trees and plants in gardens. They are quite majestic though and it always thrills me to see them.

@pamknowler Ha ha ... I know! Freuchie didn't bark, but it must have been a comical sight to see me sneaking as close to the deer as possible, keeping the dog behind me. His lead got all tangled up in the juniper bushes and I had only one hand free to take the photo and keep the camera steady. Very happy with the outcome. 😄

Well done. A dog in hand doesn't make it easy! I have resorted to standing on the leash so I don't get Unintentional Camera Movement!

Why this handsome fellow didn't bolt because of the dog in the vicinity is a mystery to me. Deer here flee at the sight of a dog. And a human with a camera. Excellent capture, and all the more so considering your one-handed hold on the camera!
