Black Tail Deer on my dad's farm near the shop.

 

We suprised each other. I was coming out of the shop and looked to my right and there he was about 10 meters away.

 

I wanteed to get a better shot with out the rye grass in the way but was also a little concerned that he might try an use those antlers on me.

 

I played with the background - Saturation and vibrance.

Awesome, John. Actually, the grass may have given him the false illusion of safety...that you really didn't see him. In that case you may have been lucky. smile
John Eagle: True, he may have felt he was safe and hidden behind the blades of grass.

Glad I didn't find out. smile
Great capture of a handsome beast. Looks wonderful with that golden background. (:o)
John Eagle: Thanks, I enhanced (saturated) the yellow background. Definitely helped.
Wonderful, wonderful shot. The lovely barley grass is a great background.
John Eagle: Thank you. Yes, the barley grass worked with me on this shot. smile

Great detail of the buck - yes, pity of the the few stems in the way. A part of animals that can't be helped - especially in the surprise situation.
