Deer at Big Meadow

Memories of another springtime, and a trip up to Big Meadow in the Shenandoah's. We were walking along the Appalachian Trail for a couple of miles when I sensed that we were not alone. I looked up and there he was, an awesome sight, staring at me as I stared at him. He waited long enough for me to get off a couple of shots and then meandered away. It was a special moment. Another special moment was when we walked down to the Meadow and came across a doe and her fawn. What can I say? No words needed here.

Isn't Mother Nature a gift for all of us? Why do people destroy it?

Wonderful shots of the doe and her fawn - how lovely to have seen them for yourself. And looking at the first shot - I reckon he was thinking "ahhh - a human - wish I'd brought my camera"! Seriously Denise, photographic moments to treasure.
