These were all taken in a park in the city where i live, the deer are kept there and the birds, well, they just visit to appreciate the food people leave behind I guess :)

The biggest challenge for the birds was to actually get them in reasonable focus, I think I should have been shooting in ISO 1600 in hindsight. As for the deer, I might need some pointers on getting a more interesting composition maybe? anyway, here they are:

Very nice pics!! i love the first and the last ones.. also i dont think thats a deer because i go hunting with my dad sometimes and deer do not have racks that big.. those are gigantic!!!.. also it just doesnt look like a deer.. and it look to small for an elk.. where do you live?

The first two are my favorite, i really like how the birds stand out of the picture, especially the second bird... it looks huge!

I have become a big bird fan, thanks to big pix and ormina...and I think that little mallard taking off is really special...wish the fence was not in the blue heron shot, but he is incredible, as well.

love both the "deer Portraits"...

great work...

thanks for putting these up for us all to enjoy.

Hi all, and thanks for the replies,

I tried to google which kind of deer they are, they're definitely not elk, But they might be "Odocoileus virginianus" -virginian deer. I'm not sure entirely sure though...
I live in the Netherlands by the way, but these were not wild deer.

I totally agree about that cursed fence, but this was one of only a few pictures i took of the heron that came out sharp... There are quite a lot of Herons aruond here though, although not as many as Ducks ;). They make nice subjects too so I expect to be taking many more heron-pictures in the future!

I asked my friend hunter, he said its most likely a Red Dear. Nice pictures by the way. My new love is birds right now. but my max 135mm lens just hasn't been cutting it lately

I'm not 100% sure but I believe this a Roe Deer.

Great pics!
