Buttons Meets His Apple ...

My favorite white-tailed deer button buck – Buttons, as I call him – meets his apple on an October day in the park as his mama doe stood close by.

I began photographing Buttons 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.

Cute As A Button ...

My favorite white-tailed deer button buck is cute as a button enjoying an apple during a January sunset in the park as his mama doe stood closeby.

It was 15 degrees with sub-zero windchills when I captured this sweet image, but it warmed my heart to see Buttons – as I call him – enjoy his apple!
