Always Vigilant


With the major deer seasons behind them our deer have relaxed somewhat but are still on guard for when danger threatens. I encountered this doe while taking one of my evening strolls. As I rounded the top of a particularly steep ridge I noticed her and others bedded below. While positioning the camera she noticed and stood to attention, conscious of the risk that I may present. The last rays of the evening sun provided beautiful light for her photograph.

I like the feeling of peeking into their world. The lighting is beautiful in this shot.
