    Not knowing how docile these deer usually are, it's hard to say if he was silly or not. Anyway, it's hardly like getting out of your car to get a photo of some wild lions, and he didn't get hurt. I've had kangaroos get a bit testy when I got too close, as many people here have done.

    The front of this part:

    proves! he was silly. - Unless you're saying that you know that these deer are docile. (Antlers for adornment only?)

    Have you never done anything that was a bit silly in retrospect? I would have to admit to the occasional silliness. Life would be very boring without.

    i agree with steve, we have all maybe " pushed " the limits of safety at some time or other, havent we?? so saying he is silly is like saying dont go take that great macro shot of a wasp ...it could sting you, or dont go to the rocks on a sea front at certain times of the day to get that " magic " long exposure, because a wave may crash in taking you with it....life IS too short to walk around in cotton wool, the guy thought a stag that close may be a once in a lifetime opportunity and grabbed it. as would i ( and i guess most of you guys too )

    1. Steve: Yes, perhaps not to this extent - and then broadcasting it to the world.
    2. Fisho: Is that because they do not fulfil your expectations? 80% is a big number.
    3. Are we still discussing the video above?

    Well, it was quite amusing and it could serve as a warning to others - be careful. I've done some very silly things in my time. The last was probably "rescuing" a black snake from a hen house. The farmer said he would kill it if it wasn't removed, so I removed it. In retrospect, a cramped hen house was probably not a great place to catch a large, angry black snake. Fortunately it quickly left the hen house and it was quite easy to catch in the grass. No camera this time, but I will always poke a camera at a snake if I can. That's probably silly too.

    On some level I guess we need to ask ourselves what are we willing to do to get a shot? If you were told that you would destroy your gear for sure, but you would most probably have a unique shot, would you do it?

    For fame and glory on failbook, twitter or flikr, nah, I'm not a "hit junkie" who needs to destroy gear or risk bodily injury for "likes".

    If the guarantee that the shot would pay to replace the gear and turn a handsome profit was in place --- probably.

    In context,

    I am not about to risk my health or any expensive gear for mere adulation by happy slapping social media types.

    I am not going to risk expensive gear unless I know that there is a viable financial return.

    YOUR needs may differ ----
