In one word: wow

How did you get that close to the dear and calf?

To be fair, the deer in Richmond are pretty used to people so they don't get too bothered unless someone gets too close.  I've seen other photographers (generally the ones with huge white lenses who machine gun their way through a zillion images every time an animal blinks....) who in my view get too close and spook the animals - so I tend to steer clear and try and wander off on my own.  I just wear drab clothing (nothing new there then), and take it easy whilst trying to keep my wits about me.  The doe was quite interested in me, as long as I kept my distance.  The stags tend to be more wary though, and at this time of year when the testosterone levels are high, it's sensible to leave them plenty of space.
