Our eyes met. She and I stood still gazing upon each other. She being the gorgeous creature she is peered at me with those big doe eyes. I stooped to pick some grass to keep her at ease, an offering of peace. She took a step forward. I raised my camera. The shutter clicked, she winked and strutted away.

  1. I’m so glad she trusted you long enough to let you see her like this, Rob! She’s a beauty.

  2. perfect moment ! :)

  3. Very nice, Rob, looks good in B&W.

  4. Haha, great shot, Rob. So nice that she didn’t bolt into the woods immediately, providing an opportunity for this photo. I like this in B&W.

  5. This has to be one of my favourite photos by you yet, such a perfect capture, the bokeh in the background, the deer looking right at you, timing is just perfect.

  6. A moment of trust, or at least, connection.

  7. Absolutely well done, Rob, what an amazing image!!

  8. […] Don’t Blink – a wonderful connection between photographer and wild deer is shared in this photograph by Rob Nopola.  Rob’s shallow depth-of-focus and black-and-white post-processing work together just perfectly to create a picture that is sure to leave the viewer feeling something. […]
