At 5:30AM, we walked down to the wooden walkway at Onnenai, Kushiro Marsh in Hokkaido. This fawn was feeding on the dewy morning grass close to it's mother. Although a little nervous, luckily they didn't run away and I was able to get some shots. This one was taken at 275mm. Others include the whole fawn, and some with the mother. I chose this one as I like the detail and the imperfections in the animal.

Avec un bon 400 mm vous avez sû imortaliser ce joli portrait de Bambi très bien cadré.
Je pardonne l'oreille coupée, ce n'est pas dérangeant du tout sachant qu'il fallait se dépêcher pour appuyer sur le déclencheur.
