Doe



Before this doe was seeking cover she was standing roadside just a few feet away from the shoulder eating some grass. Initially we had passed her and found she'd stayed in the same spot when we returned. I guess she wasn't startled because of all the cars passing along the highway. When we pulled to the shoulder I stood up through my sunroof and took an underexposed picture with my telephoto lens... I didn't have time to exchange for the proper lens with evening light dissipating into night. I had to shoot quick.

What a great shot. I love the way her head is slightly turned and the background is beautiful.

I like the way this shot came out, too. The background is perfect.

Oddly enough I've never even considered standing up through my sunroof. I don't know if I'd fit but that's such a great way to get a fast picture. Nice doe, by the way.

I never seem to capture stuff like this. Makes me miss national parks.

I quite like its sharpness...I love the blues and the sharp ruddiness...it is so full of interesting texture, too! I really quite like it!

Doe a deer a female deer, I love the look she's giving you. Wonder what she's thinking?

I love how deer are redder in certain areas. In our area they're pretty brown but if I go a little north they are red like this one. :)
