We are slowly becoming good friends :)

Welcome to my forest
Welcome to my forest, the deer told me.
He lives in a forest close to where we live and I know they can be dangerous but we are slowly becoming good friends. We call him Hirvi. Which I think it means deer in Finnish. I have no idea about Finnish :)

Life has beautiful moments like this one and I'm glad I could capture it with the camera.
As I always say "This is how true men shoot animals.. with the camera" ;-)
Good night :-)


"This is how true men shoot animals.. with the camera."

With that one sentence you have a fan for life my friend...Many men would mock that sentiment, not I. I have the utmost respect for the message you convey and I wholeheartedly share it.

Nature is a gift that is given to us to be enjoyed, your amazing photo conveys the majesty of that enjoyment perfectly...You have a gift...Hirvi is a stunningly beautiful and noble creature, the knowledge in those eyes, you captured it all perfectly my friend.

I just read you intro post...I do hope @yidneth encourages you to spend even just a little time at the other side of the camera. the imagery and atmosfear you create is simply stunning. I must absolutely congratulate you on the charred trees you photographed in Navarro, so utterly professional.

Enjoy the journey Hector it will undoubtedly take you to some truly amazing places.

wow thank you very much for your comment and for appreciating that sentence! I knew I was at risk of being mocked but I wouldn't care.
oh... the other side of the camera... it is a mystery to me hehehe I enjoy much more to photograph the beauty of nature and @yidneth :)

That's an absolute belter of a shot Hector. I love it! We have a lot of deer where we live too, but I've never got quite so close as that.

Thank you! they hear you from the distance even before you can imagine to see them. Here we have some protected forests where they live so it is easier to meet them. This one is used to see humans, but in general I'm happy they don't trust humans ;)

Impressive my friend!! very impressive.... It does not look like an alpha buck, but close to it.

Thank you!. We had an intense eye contact moment. He was like... mmm you need some antler man... ;)

Oh my god this is MAJESTIC! Beautiful shot, Mr. Hunter 😉

hehe Thank you :) This is how I like to see them. Alive and majestic as you say. Not as a trophy hanging on the wall.
