Yeah, my first monthly pic! I hope I will keep up this category faithfully. If not, you are allowed to spam me until I finally put up a new photo :)

Anyway, I took this photo while searching for Castor fiber, or the Eurasian Beaver in the Biesbosch, The Netherlands. All of a sudden my friend and I noticed we where being watched by this roe deer, standing silently among the reeds. I like this photograph not specifically because of it's colours or composition, but because of the moment it represents, an unexpected silent encounter. I managed to take this photo handholding a 400mm lens, while standing in a small wobbly boat.
