      Hi Rick

      Thank you so much, This very shot didn’t took that much preperation as its was a short moment in time. The whole deal was part of a larger outing that was prepared for quite some time. It was just that special moment for this shot ๐Ÿ™‚


      • hi Tobias!

        yes, then you must also have luck!

        I’m 13 years old and would like to have the picture but do not have much time for it.
        I have a tripod, 300mm lens, a camouflage jacket and tent, I’d pay them well prepared? I love challenges and therefore is in the weekend it is 5/6 hours waiting for the deer. but also for other birds such as bullfinch, green woodpecker, wood lark, black woodpecker and so on. I also own a site, you might want to visit! if you can not understand it, you can still translate into Dutch.
        I wonder what you think you are!

          Rick you’re a natural talent. I mean 13 years old and you’re already there. – There’s many shots on your site I would have LOVED was mine and I’ll say push on, use that patience and talent of yours and I’m convinced you’ll reach something truly great!

          All the best to you!

            I think it’s great to do and was also looking for a Sigma 300-800mm lens. and when I came to your site! ‘ve had to sit for a long time watching … what a beautiful pictures!! I’m very jealous haha. I would like to know. much more about how they can sneak up on the best best to photograph and so on. could I email if I have a question about?? did last night, the deer observed but was very far away for a 300mm lens. but later they ran into the woods … I like to photograph them …. in the golden hour, but then you need! really lucky but patience will be rewarded! I am also a member of a photography site, a few pictures that I made there are also.

            I wish you a nice evening

    That would be a sweet thing although I’m not sure there some Nature Photographers that only does assignments for National Geographic and nothing else ๐Ÿ™‚

    I’m sure you’ll do just as well as you find I as you’re starting in a early age and you definitely have talent. Just keep on pushing, Spring is a great time for nature photography, the opportunities are NOW ๐Ÿ™‚
    Saw your pictures on that site – Very nice!

    Yeah feel free to contact me at any point, I’m always trying to answer any questions as good as I can.


    • yes, I definitely try. I’m in school and it is going to shoot before school starts. so quickly to the deer ๐Ÿ™‚ chances are great now! I’m a water pack my uncle soon borrow and then I spend a day photographing in the water. I hope to shoot in the golden hour. newly born a mute swan great that I can mail you! I know few people who have as much experience as you! I will push forward as much as possible, but sometimes my parents find it too much haha. and thank you for you reaction on my site!
