Summer Velvet ...

“The soul that sees beauty may sometimes walk alone.”
                 ~ Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
                                 ~ 1749-1842

The afternoon light dances on the velvet antlers of this majestic yearling on an August day at Lehigh Parkway, Allentown, Pennsylvania.

I was happily surprised to see this young white-tailed deer buck so early in the day, as he posed for a few photos before continuing to follow a beautiful doe down the summer path.

Fawn On Summer's Ridge ...

“In all things of nature, there is something of the marvelous.”
                    ~ Aristotle
                        ~ 385-322 B.C.

There are few sweeter sights than a young and innocent white-spotted fawn such as this beautiful white-tailed deer fawn posing on a ridge near her mama doe on an early September evening as summer wanes at Trexler Nature Preserve, Schnecksville, Pennsylvania.

Doe In The Spring Greens ...

“… 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”
                              ~ Wendell Berry
                                  ~ born 1934
                 ~ American novelist, poet, environmental activist, cultural critic & farmer

My favorite white-tailed deer doe grazes in the spring greens on a beautiful June 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.
