Oriol Alamany - Jungle eye

Oriol Alamany - Jungle eye

I was working in the jungle of Bandhavgarh looking for the increasingly scarce tigers, when suddenly we came upon a Spotted deer (Axis axis) a few meters from us. Carefully I lifted the 500 mm telephoto lens and found that I only can frame the animal's face. I dared not to change the lens because given the short distance I knew the deer would flee. After taking a few simple face portraits, I explored through the viewfinder the possibilities of a so close frame and I found this less usual composition. A couple of shots and the deer turned and walked away. But I already have a picture I liked.
