I prefer it to the previous deers image. By every point of view it's amazing. The frame makes it much better, but I think it was excellent without it, too. Special moment. How beautiful the fog is in the background. Many thanks.

Great photo Gerry. The branches don't bother me because it helps camouflage the deer. The mist in background just adds. I've seen many scenes like this when I didn't have camera. Thanks for giving me one.

Most wonderful to me is that this deer is captured in its natural environment and not in a zoo or something else. I put up with those branches as they belong to this environment. Great image Gerry, very well done!

I just hate dirty cutlery !! A mistreated dog should try to leave a deposit on their masters best carpet, after all it's important to establish who's boss ... My gallery is here.

Great capture, Gerry. I love that fog in the background. It really makes the deer stand out. I like the composition of your shot also.

Did you soften this somehow? It's soft and clear at the same time. Wonderful!

Yummy!! A tasty treat!!

Venison Medallions with Balsamic Reduction and Celery Pear Puree Recipe
~courtesy Emeril Lagasse, 2001~

4 venison medallions, about 8 ounces each
Freshly ground black pepper
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 tablespoons unsalted butter
3 tablespoons minced shallots
1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
Celery Root-Pear Puree, recipe follows

Season the venison on both sides with salt and pepper.
In a large skillet, heat the oil over medium-high heat. Add the venison and cook until brown, about 3 minutes per side. Remove from the heat and cover to keep warm.

Add the butter and shallots to the pan and cook, stirring, for 2 minutes. Add the vinegar and stir to deglaze the pan, about 1 minute. Add any juices that have run off from the venison and stir to incorporate. Remove from the heat and adjust seasoning, to taste.

Divide the Celery Root-Pear Puree among 4 serving plates and top each with a venison medallion. Pour the balsamic reduction over the venison and serve.

Celery Root Pear Puree:
1 pound celery root, peeled and cut into 2-inch pieces
1 pound pears, peeled, cored, and cut into 1-inch pieces
4 tablespoons unsalted butter
1/2 cup dry white wine
1/4 cup heavy cream
Pinch nutmeg
Freshly ground black pepper

Place the celery root in a saucepan, and cover with water. Bring to a boil. Lower the heat and simmer, covered, until tender, about 20 minutes. Drain in a colander.
Meanwhile, in a large skillet, melt 2 tablespoons of the butter over medium-high heat. Add the pears and cook, stirring, until soft, about 5 minutes. Add the wine and cook, stirring, until thick and the pears fall apart. Remove from the heat.

Return the drained celery root and pears to a food processor. Add the cream and remaining 2 tablespoons of butter and puree until smooth. Season with the nutmeg, and salt and pepper to taste.

What time will dinner be served mister??

An splendid capture Gerry- the mist adds to the naturalness of it - and I think the branches on the left also work well, giving extra depth.

I see about 90 lbs of bratwurst, smoked sausage, and backstrap there. Darn, doe season just closed. You got a great shot on that doe and don't have to field dress it. That makes it twice a winner.

From birds to Deer, you are a wonderful Wildlife photographer. Great capture my friend. I would rather shoot this animal with a camera instead of a rifle any day.

What a beautiful wildlike photo! I live in the country myself and know how difficult it can be at times to catch them in their own habitat. It is fun though! Wonderful photo!

Hi Gerry! You have many wonderful deer images in your gallery :) This is the one I used in the project I did for the fairy tale contest, the lighting was perfect for where I wanted to place her in the background, although I did flip her around to face the other direction :) Thanks for the loan Gerry! This is a splendid shot! And you took the picture on my birthday too!
