I have to share this story. I was out taking pictures yesterday at Garbry Big Woods Reserve. I was in a hurry to get home to take an important call, so I was setting in my car deciding if I had time for a walk. While I was setting there, this doe and her fawn walk out of the wooded area to my left. I watch them just casually walk across the open field, heading in the direction of the pond. It was early, so I was the only person around.
She was nervous. I assume it was my car. (My Mini Cooper sets a reaction frequently:) I think it’s the red top. I was afraid to open the door because I new she would bolt. I took a few shots out the window, but they were not very good. The front glass does some weird stuff to photos.
At some point, I saw a park ranger driving into the area. I knew he was not going to stop so I could watch the deer. I opened the door as quietly as I could but they were taking off. I got out, and stood there to see what happened. They went about 25 yards, then stopped to see if they were safe. That is when I took this picture. They were looking square at me, and my camera was focused on them. I took a lot of photos. It was a beauftiful scene.
It was a great day for photos. I was able to get a few photos of a hawk, cardinal, robin, and saw a mink. Not bad for a rushed morning. And I was home for that phone call.
Prints are available for many of the photos on this site on canvas, metal or glass. They are stunning and you can purchase them for a wall at home. Click the link or the ‘prints and such’ tab.
