A Fawn In The Sun ...


   “… I come into the peace of wild things
who do not tax their lives with forethought of grief …
For a time I rest in the grace of the world, and am free.”

I spotted the sweetest sight of summer – a beautiful white-tailed deer fawn – in the late afternoon of a sunlit mid-July day as summer shines its beauty throughout Trexler Nature Preserve, Schnecksville, Pennsylvania.

Buck In The Falling Snow ...

For a time I rest in the grace of the world, and am free.”

A beautiful four point white-tailed deer buck strikes a majestic pose as a peaceful hush sweeps across the field as a midwinter snowfall begins cascading from the sky in this high contrast monochrome shot I captured in the park in the late afternoon of a February day.

Doe's Taste Of Summer ...

My favorite white-tailed deer doe enjoys a taste of summer as she savors an apple on a beautiful July evening in the park.

I’ve been blessed to photograph this doe and her fawns since 2012, and it’s a true joy to me personally and as a photographer.
