How Far is that Deer? and How Much Did You Crop?

Often we see photos of wildlife on this forum, however sometimes the photo isn't the full story. Now I know there are places where you can get so close to the deer that a small short prime is all that is necessary for the shot. I've been to some of these places, They are neat for a short time but get boring pretty quickly as there is no challenge. Where i chase deer around they typically don't let you get closer then 100m (330ft) and on occasion you can get closer but the deer are skiddish and that makes you have to use strategy to get closer for better shots. a lot more fun then just walking by and taking a shot.

The top of each photo has distance and crop information. There are 2 photos of a Coyote also in the gallery

The gallery:

The first photo and from the furthest distance 600m (1980ft)

Go to the gallery! 19 more images much closer then this one.

Let me know your favourite and if you like the idea of presenting the distance and crop information.
