Curious White-Tailed Deer Fawn

This White-Tailed Deer fawn kept looking up to see what I was doing as I approached.  I never got close enough for it to move away but it kept pretty close tabs on what I was up to.  Luckily the lighting worked in my favor and I was able to capture this image with a catch light in the deer’s eye.

Resting White-Tailed Deer

Photograph of a whilte-tailed deer resting in a meadow

About a week ago I visited the Big Meadow section of Shenandoah National Park, specifically looking for deer.  As I walked through the meadow I noticed this White-Tailed Deer watching me.  I was able to get much closer, the deer in the park are quite used to people, but I like this image of the meadow with the deer resting in it.

Before The Nap

After a busy morning decorating the house for the holidays Stella decided it was time for an afternoon nap.


Chipmunk On Rock

This chipmunk was scurrying among the rocks of the Firehole River in Yellowstone National Park.  It stopped on a nice sunny rock long enough for me to take this photo.


On The Prowl

This black bear slowly wandered through a meadow while we watched it from a safe distance.  I wish the lighting had been better but that’s one of the challenges of wildlife photography.


Black Bear With Cubs

A black bear and her two cubs look for food among fallen timber.  While we watched they periodically stopped and clawed at the fallen trees.  I can only assume they were after the insects inside the logs.
