  1. Stunning, wonderful expression and a really good closeup of the antlers.

    By the way, I love how you kept the EXIF info on this photo. JungleDragon has detected it, you can check the values in the right sidebar, Info tab :)

    1. +1 on the EXIF information. I was actually hesitating to make a comment on it, since most of the uploaded photos were lacking this information. I already visited your site where I found out about your gear (7D is my dream camera, magnificent piece of hardware). It is great to see the actual settings of the shot, gives just that little bit more perspective. Posted 10 years ago
      1. Fully agree. I don't think it is intentional if users remove the EXIF though, it seems most photos were optimized for web publishing before being uploaded to JungleDragon. You're right though, I can only encourage users to upload their originals, since they are protected and you get extra karma for EXIF data and the higher resolution. Most importantly, it tells other photographers what you used. Posted 10 years ago
        1. It's not intentional indeed. I prefer to see the EXIF data with photos, too.
          I mostly use photos that are generated for my site and this way of saving unfortunately doesn't preserve the EXIF.

          1. It's no problem, Roeselien, you may upload them in your preferred method. I'm very glad you're sharing your wonderful work with or without EXIF. Posted 10 years ago
  2. Today's Facebook post:

    Happy Earth Day! Today isn’t just any Earth Day—it’s the 50th celebration of Earth Day! It’s a great time to give back to the Earth! To do something for our planet.

    This year, under the current circumstances with the COVID-19 pandemic, that may simply mean staying inside and letting the Earth rest. Perhaps you could check out some virtual Earth Day events. Or, lend some support to an organization focused on the conservation of our magnificent home. But, if you can get out into nature, treat it well. Tread gently. Show respect for wildlife. Pick up litter, even if it’s not your own. Show the Earth some love, enjoy its beauty, and use this quiet time to reflect on how you, as an individual or as part of a group, can make a difference in the world that we all share.

    This is the ideal time for optimism and action. Regardless of the situation we are in today, we can make tomorrow better. Let’s all do our part.

The Fallow Deer is a ruminant mammal belonging to the family Cervidae. This common species is native to western Eurasia, but has been introduced widely elsewhere. It often includes the rarer Persian Fallow Deer as a subspecies, while others treat it as an entirely different species.
