This is an Elk, seen next to the road in Jasper NP, Canada.

He proceeded to cross the water of a river just when the sun was behind the clouds. The silver lining, the blue water, the mountains in the background, AND the elk... I think this is my favo pic from Canada.

Hmm, not many deer yet. Let's add one:
 
med_gallery_19057_801_493070.jpg
 
This Chital deer Axis axis unsuspectedly strolled towards a water hole where suddenly it found itself surrounded by a pride of Asiatic lions. There was no doubt in my mind that I would witness a swift kill within seconds, but the little deer somehow managed to find a gap an outran the five or six lions that had positioned themselves within a circle of no more than 30 metres.

Whitetail deer doe and youngster feeding in our front yard during a snowstorm. Photo was taken in January 2012. We live on a mountain in a very wooded area so we see deer quite often.


Cheers,
David

Actually I may be going to the US next year so I can go up there then. Meanwhile he's going to Ecuador and plans to find out how the locals get over to the Galapagos, I can't stand afford organised tours so am hoping he comes up with something.

 

@pme

That's one lucky Chital deer.

Gorgeous animals.
 
Living in Oz I didn't think I had any deer photos, then I remembered this one in the Kosciuszko NP.

There are an introduced species and considered feral here, especially in a national park.

Its a Kansu Red Deer, one of the rarest deer in the World, I hardly seen any picture taken in the wild.
This was made in Prov. Quinghai, Tibet last August. Also observed one McNeil Deer, which is even more rare, but couldn't take a picture, just seen it running away.

Cheers, Lajos

Superb, well done Lajos. Now, a Tibet trip report would be good :)

Well, have it, was written with the tourleader Jesper Hornskov who lives in Beijing. It was a birding trip. Unfortunately the file is protected, can't copy the contact, but I can attach it. I attach more, there was some mammals trip with Jesper. For me the mammal highlight was the Chiru (Pantholops hodgsonii), a childhood dream to see, and several Przewalsky's Gazelles, one of the rarest, only 400 left.

Cheers, Lajos

Thankyou. Will be read with a mug of tea later: can you invite Jesper to come onto Safaritalk?

Hi Matt, Honestly, I don't think he is interested in safari issues that much, he is a absolute bird fanatic (as being a birdguide by myself, I can tell he is the best I ever met with anywhere... he is a living legend).

But if you think, please feel free to invite him as a Root Admin, he certainly knows everything going on in Tibet. Unfortunately Tibet is closed now, so the best bet is Quinghai or maybe Xinjiang-Uygur. There are of course no lodges and alike, and to make it worse, its not allowed to sleep in tents out in the wilderness, so eg. we had to spend our nights in local hotels which is pretty far from OK. Food was great indeed, scenery is  strikingly beautiful, and I definitely don't give up to get to Chang Tang sometimes to see the mass Chiru migration in the Aru Basin.

Lajos, can I direct you to our birding forums here. Work in progress, perhaps you can help? :)
