Yesterday's favorite image

As I am enjoying my retirement, I try to get outside shooting everyday, of course that depends greatly on the weather here in Iowa. Yesterday was a blustery day, then some precipitation, followed by some fog in the late afternoon and evening. I was out taking some fog images, but had to be back to pick-up Renee for a meeting around 5pm. As I pulled into the subdivision, I glanced to my left and saw a young buck (see image below) stepping out of the fog. He stopped, and so did I. There were several other deer in the open field to the left, but none of them had the fog behind them. As I lowered my window and raised my camera, the young buck looked directly at me, posing perfectly. I got off a few images with my Canon 80D, Av mode, ISO 800, f/5.6, 100-400mm II lens at 349mm, using spot metering. The image was only slightly cropped in Photoshop.

p.s. We still made it to the meeting on time.
