Deer Sight

Photograph by Moricz Csaba, National Geographic Your Shot

Roe deer, found throughout Europe, approach the edge of a forest in Bajzattanya, Hungary, near the village of Lónya on the Ukrainian border. Your Shot member Moricz Csaba had finished a day's shooting of landscape photos when the deer appeared. "I knew where they were going," Csaba says, "so I only had to wait for the right moment."

This photo was submitted to Your Shot. Check out the new and improved website, where you can share photos, take part in assignments, lend your voice to stories, and connect with fellow photographers from around the globe.

Absolutely great shot. I love the way the trees look so evenly spaced with the deer seemingly running to their safety.

This is a beautiful image and rare to see such an interesting landscape. I live in a forest environment where the deer hunting season breaks my heart. It is a pleasure to see these young deer being shot by a camera and not a firearm. Great Photography!

Beautiful contrast. It reminds me of what we call the "onion fields" outside of Point Pelee National Park in Leamington, Ontario. The soil is so black it looks like tilled charcoal. Just like the earth in this photo.

I always love photos that create many questions . The uniformity of various textures are interesting.... What kind of forest has trees lined up in uniform rows? The deer are high alert..? Many questions in this photo

This is the kind of shot that should only be used on wildlife!  Lovely job.

Num certo lugar e noutro tempo, chamaria a isto a "Zona de Morte" perfeita...

One more winning photograph,one more comment that deserves to be a good one. Just simply a fantastic shot. The forest of trees making a curtain like backdrop to where the deer are heading, is just awesome. They are spaced apart almost exactly, as if posed that way!  j.e.s.....

Interesting but I get a lot of shots of deer running away from me across tilled or untilled fields like this.  Not my favorite.

Just a beautiful St. Pat's Day in the forest.

Trees + branches + newly tilled soil + deers running with all these in the background have created an enchanted atmosphere.

Thank you, and unfortunately, the 16:9 aspect ratio is incorrect.
