Afternoon Of A Fawn ...

      whereas nature speaks to all the faculties …”

 I spotted the sweetest sight of summer – a beautiful white-tailed deer fawn – in the early afternoon of a beautiful July day along the Delaware and Lehigh National Heritage Corridor (D&L Trail)  near the East Penn Township Trailhead in Bowmanstown, Pennsylvania.

I was surprised to see this white-spotted cutie so early in the afternoon, with its mama doe close by.

Running from Wilkes-Barre to Bristol, the D&L Trail passes through the Lehigh and Delaware rivers and their canals in Pennsylvania.

It doesn’t get sweeter than this, seeing a beautiful white-tailed deer fawn tenderly nuzzling its mama doe on a gorgeous July evening in the park – a honey of a summer sight!

Doe's Taste Of Summer ...



“… 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.”
                       ~ “The Peace of Wild Things”

                    environmental activist,         
                      cultural critic & farmer

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.
