Great Prince of the Forest by Karelliann Great Prince of the Forest by Karelliann
Yes, the title is a reference to Disney's Bambi.

I saw this magnificent deer while visiting the oh-so-amazing Omega Park in Montebello, Quebec. He seemed like he was enjoying the last spark of sunlight summer had to offer while keeping guard for his herd of female which, I believe, surely was close-by.

I approached him slowly and quietly, trying not to disturb him too much. My photography equipment being what it is, I had to walk a little if I wanted to get a good shot of this beautiful deer, even if that meant losing the one chance I had to take his picture.

To my surprise, he didn't flinch. He looked at me right in the eye as I kept approaching, very carefully. I snapped a couple of pictures, thanked him and let him enjoy the rest of the afternoon.

do you happen to know what breed of deer he is? He's absolutely gorgeous and your photograph does his some holy justice.

I always thought that only fawn have their fur covered with white spots.  Apparently not all species lose their spot when they grow up.   What a beautiful buck!

Yes, I used to think so, too! I think Bambi might be to blame. ;)
Thank you!
