High Jump: A Near Miss



Sometimes action takes place when we full expect it and are ready to make the capture, other times it happens that we are not expecting it at all and never get the camera into action.

In this case I seen what was unfolding and was only able to be partially prepared by the time the deer made the leap.

This is a great pic... as are all of your photos! I love your blog, which I recently found when doing a search for pics of my home state, PA. I'm originally from south central PA, but moved with my husband to SC 2 years ago.

I'll definitely be visiting your blog often! :)

WOW - what a great photograph!!

It looks like you were very well prepared - it even looks like you gave the deer some art direction so that you could perfctly frame him/her between the trees and posts.

Flawless photo.
