In the quiet, foggy, pearly pre-dawn light this morning, I saw some deer in our yard. Here's the doe:
Here's the same photo with the colors adjusted to compensate for the dim light.
Here's one of her fawns.
Hey, when you gotta go, you gotta go.
You should have seen me, creeping around the barn and poking the camera lens through cracks and knotholes, trying to take photos without being seen.
Here are both the fawns. Even though they're bigger, they still have their spots.
I was probably about 15 feet away from the doe at this point, peering through a crack in the barn wall.
The light was still pretty dim so these photos are grainy at best.
I noticed one of the fawns going around the corner of the barn, so I snuck into the chicken coop entry and stepped quietly out with my camera already adjusted to a zoom. I'm about ten feet away and the fawn looked at me with agitation.
Moments later she was gone with a flash of white tail.
