familiar face. It was difficult to tell, but it looked like the sun was shining right on one of the furtive creatures. So I lifted up my long lens to take a better look and sure enough, there she was, standing and curiously staring from just inside the cover and safety of the wilderness. However it wasn’t until I got home and brought the image up in Photoshop that I discovered that there were two deer in the picture! The second one was hiding in the darkness of predawn shade and it was just luck that I got her in the picture too 🙂

Later on I came across the rest of the herd foraging for food in the deep mountain grass.

Unfortunately they were in the shade so the best possible image wasn’t available, but I do think I got a nice portrait of a really cute one though 🙂 These did not flee from me, they just looked on with a fairly uninterested expression on their faces while they filled their bellies on the lush grass.

These images and more are available for purchase on my website as wall art on glossy metal, acrylic, canvas, and traditional matting. One inside the image website, just click on a picture you like and all the product options and pricing will become available!
