Unbelievable photos JJ! How amazing to capture this. The lighting softening the scene definitely adds much to the photo!

Nice shot, I have never seen deer suckling. How come the mom doesn't have spots?

Nice,JJ, I agree with all the other sentiments. The only thing I would add, and it's not a biggie by any means, would be to straighten the horizon slightly to make the tree on the left appear more vertical.

Your deer shots are unequalled here at Steve's, IMHO.

"How come the mom doesn't have spots? "

Only fawns have spots for camoflage, in order to protect them from predators; as they grow older the spots disappear.

Thanks Gordy. The fawns are one of my favorite subjects.

Thanks Raghu. About the spots.

"The speckled coats of young deer usually blend well with the spots of light that filter through the leaves to the forest floor and unless the fawn moves, it is not easily seen."

Hi Robert, thanks for the kind words and the input. I will give it a straighten and see how it looks.
