The Yearling ...



“The wild animals seemed less predatory to him than people he had known.”
          ~ from “The Yearling”
        ~ published in March 1938 by
 Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings (1896-1953) & adapted into the Academy Award winning film of the same name in 1946

My favorite yearling pauses to pose on a late spring evening just before an early June sunset in the park.

I began photographing Buttons, as I call him, as a precious white-spotted fawn, then a sweet button buck and now a beautiful yearling, tossing him many apples, which he loves eating, along the way. It’s a true joy and blessing to me personally and as a photographer to watch this white-tailed deer grow.
