Jumping Deer Sequence

I received a number of requests to see the deer sequence so I thought I would just go ahead and publish it out to the blog.

I’ve photographed wildlife for over 4 decades and most of that time I’ve been blessed to capture many shots of White Tail and Mule deer along with other Deer species like Moose and Elk. Over 11 months in the 1970’s, I spent a lot of that time capturing deer pictures in the Smokey Mountains while recovering from an intense job. I’ve only been photographing birds in such a targeted way for the past 18 years. Deer was my first love when it came to wildlife photography. Back in those days, even with a high-speed film winder clacking away, I could not begin to get the shot at the vertical apex of the deer’s jump like in this shot unless I just happened to time it just right, and have some luck. To be able to grab a perfect sequence at this resolution like this is absolutely amazing to me. I hope you enjoy this sequence as much as I do. I think it’s amazing.
