Ever had one of those shots that just took forever to get it right? No editing...just the perfected shot, and maybe a description of what made it hard.

A roe deer that we rescued. I had only two chances to take a photo. I improvised with exposure becose there were no cars and waited for one to come. After first overexposured shot i took this picture. Deer hasn't moved for 4 s and was in almost ideal focus. Then we took him to the forest ranger and after two weeks he got better.
