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.

Nuzzle ...

 I feel so blessed personally and as a photographer to have witnessed this tender, precious moment as this beautiful white-tailed deer doe nuzzles her sweet fawn on a mid-March evening when winter is about to segue into spring at Trexler Memorial Park, Allentown, Pennsylvania.
