Was out stalking one day and had just turned round and started to make my way back to the car. I was slowly inching my way along a sunlit bank on the edgo of a wood when I came across this buck dozing away.
I got to withing 5 metres of it and as it was a bit too good to shoot by me ( The gound is client stalked, so I just get to mop up the youngsters and poor heads etc), I decided to take a picture or two.

Well the buck heard the camera shutter go and turned round. It instantly saw me and launched into the sky running flat out.
It ended up being so close that the camera would'nt focus properly, however I am sure you can see how close that was from the pictures.


First picture..........
