As I rounded the curve on a quiet country road, I could see three whitetail fawns playing on top of a small hill next to the road. After placing my camera on top of the beanbag on the door of my jeep, I shut the engine off and coasted to a stop. The fawns looked at me for a few seconds and one of them decided to run along the hilltop from the left side of my view to the right side. As I singled out the lone fawn with the 500mm lens I fired off a burst of shots as it covered the 100 foot distance. On reviewing the shots a couple of minutes later I realized I had captured the
large flag that was hoisted on a pole in front of a garage that was approximately 100 yards behind the hill.  The compression factor from using a long telephoto lens gave the illusion of the flag being closer to the fawn than it actually was. Regardless, I was lucky to have gotten the shot!!
