Buck with Velvet Antlers

We found this buck whitetail deer with his antlers covered in velvet.  He was resting in relatively open hardwoods but the overhead canopy didn't allow much light to penetrate.  After waiting patiently a sunbeam tracked over him for a few minutes and we were able to get this photograph.  The dark forest helps to frame the deer.  Its also nice that he was watching something in the distance and his ears are forward.
400 lens, 1/400 second at f/2.8, ISO 1000.
