Surprise Deer!

While out by the pond photographing the BF graduation ceremony I was joined by a couple of local gardeners on their way to trim our strawberry plants and ornamental shrubs.

Of course they wanted their picture taken but I had a very long telephoto lens on my camera. I actually had to back up to get a few quick 'snap shots'. Even at that I wasn't able back up far enough to get them completely in the frame.

It seems to me that there is an inverse lens law such that when an unexpected subject presents itself afar my camera will have a wide angle lens attached and  conversely when the subject appears abruptly and close at hand my camera will have a telephoto lens attached.
