Great stuff! How'd you get so close?

These are great. Are they just playing in the top photo or are they being serious?

Great closeups. Beautiful animals.

Faye, boys will be boys! These little guys seemed to be the best of friends and were enjoying a little tussle.

Ah, my old stomping grounds. If you enter the park from Front Royal, try heading down towards Shenandoah River State Park instead. I have camped there in February, and that makes for some rather interesting shoots. If you are into backpacking, there are a series of trails on the ridge immediately West of the park. The easiest way to get to them is from “Elizabeth Furnace” the next valley over. The hike from the fish ponds at the north end of the ridge down to Elizabeth Furnace, or if you are into a few more miles, Little Crease Shelter, is wonderful.

Bill, it is a small world indeed! The photos in this series were taken between Thornton’s Gap and Swift Run Gap. The majority of the buck action was near Big Meadows.
