Eyelashes to Die For!


That’s what my wife exclaimed when she first saw this image.


As a man I hadn’t really though about what beautiful long eyelashes this innocent little fawn is blessed with.


Although we are brothers and live side by side, Willard and I seldom shoot together. With the exception of shooting the autumn whitetail rut we usually find that our photographic interest takes us in different directions.


Thursday evening I decided that it was past time for me to accompany him on a whitetail fawn shoot. It was time well spent!

Great shot, Salty... You know, I often run into deer and cute fawns like this one, but I seldom get a shot as good as this one...   I even have them walking through my yard at all hours of the day (they like to hang out on the hillside below me), so maybe I'd better get prepared and try for some better snaps... (I could probably put that 100-400 "L" of yours to good use if I thought I could afford it...

Soooo precious. It must be a woman thing because I always notice the long lashes too.

I agree with aphotoaday regarding your 100-400 L. I drooled when I saw it listed. That lens is on my dream list.

Salty: What great photos you get with your super camera. I'm always happy to see what you have done.

Definitely time well spent! And it's the 'only' way to shoot a fawn. What an awesome photo!!

And thank you for your time in posting this. A really nice shot with great background color and lighting. And it's probably a boy (can you tell yet?); they are always the ones with the best eyelashes!
