One morning while I was suffering from the raging fever of Lyme disease I sat on our front porch just trying to get through the day. Mourning Doves, Catbirds, Mocking Birds, Cardinals, and Chipping Sparrows were busy flitting about the windbreak. Since I also suffer from the photo-bug I slowly made my way inside and retrieved the camera. Once settled back into my chair this little Chipping Sparrow posed prettily in the early morning sun making for a memorable photograph; the only good memory from that miserable week.
With the whitetail fawns now spending much of their time with their mothers they are easily seen during early morning and late evening hours. I loved the attentive expression on this fawns face as it paused one morning before sunrise to check on the whereabouts of mom. For me wildlife photography is about memories. Memories that are preserved in my minds eye and digitally as well.
