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

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.

“… 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.”

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.
